We did a self guided audio tour of Greenwich and this was towards the end. It was lovely to sit in the warm sunshine by the fountain, facing the arch, and watch all the people. I particularly enjoyed the guy going around with a cardboard...More
The best season to go there is the summer but always fun, relaxing! So many people included street performances.. You just sit and watching those people is one of the relaxation. Safe safe... NYC is full of surprise but I assure you it is safe...More

Another iconic NYC site that tourists should put on their must see list. It was a bit out of our way to get to and we only spent 15 minutes max there but it was still worth seeing the famous arch. Although I’l admit I...More

A must see while walking New York and Greenwich Village area. Famous Arch and fountain must appear in many photos. Quiet spot, with people playing chess in the shade of the trees. Nice place to rest a while from walking.

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.
The park is free and is Surrounded by Greenwich Village, which is also interesting to stroll through. It's best to visit the park on a nice day when there are lots of things going on there. Also not far away is Highline... More
