    Lots of squirrels and obscure people. A great spot to sit and have a sandwich and watch the world go by.

    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.

    Love this park, perfect for a sunny day in the West Village. Always something interesting and unexpected, from street performers to festivals. Cool off in the fountain too

    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.
  • Cameron G.
    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.

    Great spot to hang out in during the spring. Be sure to bring your blanket, as the ground can be quite damp.

    This is basically part of NYU, so there’s always a ton of activities going on here. It’s a nice place to sit and people watch.

    Great for people watching. Lots of sunny and shady spots to sit or lie down.

    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.
