If you're lucky and he's there when you are, you'll be able to listen to a guy in the middle of the park playing a grand piano that he wheeled in to busk with!
The bros in the park are chill, unless you beat them at a chess match. #DontBlowIt
Avoid the sketchy man offering you crack cocaine.
A beautiful park and a must see for any visitor. It's perfect when you just want to sit on a bench and read a book or do some people watching. On nice days you can find all sorts of live music too.
One of the most iconic parks in NYC and one of it’s most notorious. Currently going through a massive renovation, but that hasn’t kept the people away!
Girls happened here. Marnie, Shoshanna, and Ray discussed Jessa's flakiness and Shosh ran into a "vintage" rollerblading classmate.
If you say his name three times, Allen Ginsberg appears.
Catch a cool mist off the fountain on a hot day.
At one point or another throughout your time at New York University, you have likely taken a walk through Washington Square Park. Make sure to stop by at least one more time before you graduate!
come early in the morning. it's magically calm and almost tranquil as if you were not even in NY at all
Farmland for Dutch colonists, a cemetery by the 1810s, a posh precinct when the arch arrived in 1889, and a counterculture hangout in the ‘60s, it’s now NYU’s hub. - Green Guide Editor
Nyu may not have a campus, but we have wsp. All's good.
I don’t normally feed the pigeons but the last time I was here I fed them a tale of my city dwelling condor, Eli. Needless to say they ate it up.
I once saw a woman chalk a note to the famous pigeon man on the ground where he always sits. The note said "Dear sir ... I think you're lovely."
If you're a visitor, take a picture of that arch. It's a famous arch. It stars in so many movies.
Come out and see sand paintings by arch on Saturdays. Occasional wednesday or Fridays as well
Lovely for after-work quick dates. Sit in the park during warm months and enjoy the waterfall. Brick oven pizza/restaurant right down the block and Rare restaurant too.
Look out for "Crazy Piano Guy" Colin Huggins. His piano ain't a public one though, be aware! It's his own and he lugs it every day from a storage unit. Dedication. Talented guy.
Awesome park and celebrity magnet!
Stop by the Wine & Liquor store on Broadway and Astor and pick up quarter bottles of wine for 1.99/bottle. Mix with diet coke for a sweet little midweek lunch break.
Washington Square is and always will be the epicenter of the most dynamic area of Manhattan.
The four corners: northeast families, northwest drugs, soutwest dogs, southeast college kids. And the all come together in a big, never-ending drum circle in the middle.
The Park's fountain area has long been one of the city's popular spots for residents and tourists.
Come out during the summer and take a nice swim in the fountain! Take a shower afterwards though. That water doesn't look too great.
There's always something amazing & cool happening. From street performers, to musicians, to mini-festivals; you’ll find something worth photographing here.
One of the best spots in NYC. The vibe here is unlike anywhere else. The arch is a wonder to behold, especially when it is lit up at night.
Go to Washington Square Park today and enjoy the surroundings. The sun is warm and because it's a holiday, the mood is serene. Great for dogs, too!
Check (mate) this spot out. It’s one of the most famous places to play chess in the city!
That fountain sure can't cool you off as much as a dip in the Atlantic will! Check out Coney Island for your summer staycation!
Watch out for the angry midget who yells at NYU students crossing the street!
Shade to go (W3rd & Sullivan) + Wash Sq. Park + Warm breeze == Perfect afternoon... PERFECT I TELL YOU!!!
The park is beautiful at night when the fountain is lighted. Take a picnic dinner and enjoy!
Proud to be NYU - get your pep on as the Pep Band will perform at Washington Square Park as part of Grad Alley on May 21st!
cool spot for people watching
One of the best places to people watch in the city.
- people watching is my favorite hobby.
Construction on east side is finally done! Now you can people watch in the sun or shade :)
Sit and rest by the fountain. If you're daring, take your shoes off and jump INTO the fountain.
pour chillaxer un peu :)

C'è una statua di Giuseppe Garibaldi, detto l'eroe dei due mondi. Abraham Lincoln offrì a Garibaldi la guida nell'esercito dell' Unione all'inizio della guerra di secessione americana, ma lui rifiutò.
