"Cool little garden"

Sheridan Square is about a block of turf that turns into Washington Place just before Washington Square Park. The actually square of Sheridan Square is more of a garden but New Yorkers take green anywhere they can get it. And, I think it's pretty cool that the area residents are what keep the garden going. It's not much to look at when you compare it to the nearby park, but it used to be an ugly traffic island, so I don't think anyone is complaining. Directly across the street used to be a popular bar called The Pirate's Den. It had been around forever and was torn down by the devil otherwise known as NYU. I swear, that school is going to be the death of New York. Where there used to be cool places that Keats hung out, there are now and will continue to be ugly, tenement looking buildings as long as NYU keeps getting permits. It's a really good school, and I think I still wouldn't let my kid go there just out of spite. But, I digress . . . .
This is a high traffic area because of the conjunction of 7th, West 4th and Christopher just west of the garden, so it's not the most peaceful setting. But, the neighborhood is so pretty on it's own that you just kind of deal with the traffic. And, on a nice day, it's a great place to sit and people watch. You can't live on Sheridan Square, obviously, but as far as a stop by kind of block on your way to the park, it's lovely.
