    Great park, many musicians play throughout the summer, very relaxing with a cool fountain & the Arc
  • James P.
    Is that the Arc de Triomphe? You'd probably not be surprised to hear that the Memorial Arch was modelled after the famous French landmark.

    When the weather is nice, there are few places I'd rather be than enjoying the sunshine at WSP. Grab a book and some boba and enjoy one of NY's best parks.

    Crowded like crazy... and the dog corner is simply sad. But hey, the park is small in the end.
  • William D.
    Love taking my dog for a walk every evening to this park. Great scenery.

    One of the best outdoor spaces in Manhattan. Look for the piano player for a concert-level performance.

    Layout is a little weird since the NYU renovation. These days it is overrun with NYU students and Jazz wannabees. Not the hub of talent it was in previous decades.

    It's bustling, filled with 24-hour dining, shopping, nightlife and arts, but still cozy, with ample greenery and architecture that's more low-rise brownstones than high-rise office buildings.

    Oh, WaSquaPa! From sunset yoga to dog-spotting, the park is often abustle with vibrancy. Bring a book, or simply sit and watch—the humans of New York do not disappoint!

    Washington Square Arch frames the 45 foot tree, backed by an uninterrupted view up Fifth Avenue with the Empire State Building in the distance. Stop by on Christmas Eve night for public caroling.
