We arrived here on Wednesday 28th June, found a bench and just sat for 10 minutes taking in the magnitude of where the Stonewall riots started some 48 years ago to become Pride today. The statues were wearing a rainbow feather boa...perfect!

This tiny, pie-shaped parkette is an oasis in the middle of bustling Greenwich Village. There really isn't much room but the numerous benches make it a great spot to rest your legs. It's also the site of the Stonewall National monument, one of the National...More

Currently sitting here. It's really tiny. The statues are beautiful and seems to portray two people just being together. If I hadn't known it was meant to represent a lesbian couple I'd have thought it was just friends. I like how he portrays the LGBT...More

This historic almost 200 hundred years old park afforded the best seats to watch the Stonewall Riots. Quick thinking spectators came here and stood on benches and overturned trash barrels to watch the fray happening across the street. In the 1980's a copy of George...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
