Washington Square, New York, NY

Washington Square is a park in Greenwich Village. While much smaller that Central Park it is still a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of NYC.

The Washington Square Arch was built in 1892 to celebrate the centennial of George Washington's inauguration as President of the United States in 1789 and forms the grand southern terminus of Fifth Avenue.

The view to the south is of the new World Trade Center.
