“Chilling out at the Park”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Of the parks around New York, I think I like Washington Square park the best! There's something happening at every corner you turn. From stunts groups to street bands, to even the pigeon man.
It's a place to just chill out and see a host of different forms of entertainment all in one place. And I think, it's a good 'New York experience'-- so do check it out if you have the time.

“Sounds of music in the evening”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Drummers, guitar and other musicians. Beautiful lights and nice neighborhood. The Empire State building seen under the Washington Arch was picture perfect. Would love to come back during the day.

“Decent park”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Nice, but small, park and obviously not as famous as Central but still worth a stroll and people watching if you're in the neighbourhood.
