"A beautiful little stretch of New York City blocks"

When the weather begins to turn from frigid icy winter to blooming springtime, Washington Square is flooded with students and New Yorkers who've been longing to feel the sun on their faces once again. Summer will see the fountains turned on - and visitors are free to play in the water and some even wander around barefoot.

The famous arc over the park is worth making a trip to the park, but as far as parks go Washington Square Park isn't the best one around. It makes for a decent jog if you circle around the park quite a few times - which a lot of people come here to do. There is an extensive amount of benches, many of which are filled with homeless people, reading students, and some locals.

Washington Square N is a beautiful little stretch of New York City blocks, lined with brownstones that are surely very pricey. There is usually quite a bit of foot traffic in the area, but the streets aren't too bad when it comes to Manhattan traffic.
  • It's clean, green and lovely!
  • Great for people watching
  • Can be overwhelmingly crowded
  • Lots of homeless people hanging about
