You just gotta visit Washington Square if you are in NYC. The arch itself is much more majestic than what you usually see in the movies. Lots of music going on, from somebody who played classical piano (with the grand piano in the middle of the park) to some mediocre xylophone that didn't seem to get the right tune. We... More

The Arch at Washington Square park is certainly one that needs to be seen in person. Always seen in movies it is unmistakeable when you come across it and it is certainly one you will want to get up close to and take in. Washington Square Park itself is great fun, full of entertainers and places to sit and eat.... More

The Washington Square arch is located at the entrance to Washington Square Park, and it is well worth a visit if you're in the area. There is a very imposing statue of George Washingtonon the front side. A passage through the arch takes you into the park, which is also well worth a visit, especially in good weather and on...

The fountain was not on in April, but the Washington Square Arch is a great photo all by itself. This is a replica of the Arc de Triomphe modeled by Stanford White.

Great place to take pictures because of the beautiful arch and fountain. The fountain was empty when we went because it was winter time but it was still pretty. Definitely recommend!!

During our day trip through the Village, we ended up walking right into Washington Square without realizing where we were headed. Didn't mean to come here, but ended up spending a couple of hours. The park is nice, and offers plenty of shade in the middle of the hot summer. The arch is seen in so many movies, that you... More

We stumbled across this by accident but it's very nice. :) The park had a decent amount of people who all seemed to be having fun. There were little kids playing in the fountain and people playing music.

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
