A visit around Greenwich village has to include a trip to Washington Square park to experience the park and see the Washington Square Arch, a replica of the Arc de Triomphe, lovely place, well worth a visit.
A park in Greenwich Village, well known for the famous huge arch in its gate (which you probably remember from multiple movie scenes throughout the years). A wonderful place to sit and relax, watch the dog walkers and all kind of street performers among the...More
Amid New York City rush, Washington Square Park slowed me down with its calmness and artistic history. The Park is surrounded by a nice neighborhood and cafés. Recommended for locals and tourists with extra free time.

Washington Square Park is a New York institution. In the evening, musicians, students, families, dog walkers, visitors all converge on the central fountain or stroll the paths. The flowers are brilliant in spring and summer, but it's worth a visit at any time of year....More
We walked from High Line Park to the Washington Square, as a friend was a big fan of the movie The Legend and wanted to go. I'm glad we did that. The park is really cool and the architecture close to it is impressive.
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
The park is free and is Surrounded by Greenwich Village, which is also interesting to stroll through. It's best to visit the park on a nice day when there are lots of things going on there. Also not far away is Highline... More
