    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.
  • Matthew F.
    Great for people watching. Lots of sunny and shady spots to sit or lie down.
  • Carlos A.
    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.

    Affectionately monikered WaSquaPa, the park has seen everything from impromptu concerts to political rallies, aptly epitomizing our “in and of the city” mantra.

    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!

    This is one of the coolest places in NYC...I'll take it over Central Park any day! In the summer there's music and art fairs all over the area and kids jumping around in the fountain!
