Washington Square Park & New York University Photos

Washington Square Park defines the heart of Greenwich Village. The park centers on Washington Memorial Arch (1892) by Stanford White. New York University now occupies most of the heritage and modern buildings around the park for several blocks so the park is essentially the center of the campus.
