NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: One of the most historical and popular parks in NYC, Washington Square Park near NYU is most famous for its towering Washington Arch at the entrance. A NYC attraction that hasn't lost its unique touch, Washington Park NY is newly renovated and features some of the craziest street performers and bizarre people-watching in New York City.

Why We Go: Washington Square Park has a history of counterculture activity - from the "Beatnik Riots" in 1961 to the outdoor chess tables that still grace this park - and the newly-renovated Washington Square NYC is mostly unchanged. Much like NYC itself, Washington Square Park remains a melting pot - and that's why NYC tourists love it.

  • Washington Arch: The famous arch at the entrance of Washington Square Park NYC was originally a temporary structure honoring President Washington's inauguration centennial. However, locals loved it so much that they built a permanent Washington Arch, which still stands at this popular NYC park today.
  • Dog Run: The fenced-in dog park at Washington Park NYC is perfect if you're traveling with your pooch. Chat with local NYU students while your dog runs amok at Washington Square NY.
  • Sunny Days: When the warm sun is shining, there are few places in NYC that are more enjoyable than Washington Square Park. Catch some rays and indulge in the art of people-watching at Washington Park NY.

Inside Knowledge: While Washington Square Park NYC has long been seen by New York natives as one of the "shadier" parks in the Big Apple, the stereotype no longer fits. 24-hour cameras and off-duty police officers patrol this famous NY park regularly, making it a safe and family-friendly free attraction in NYC. Heck, even "Sesame Street" has filmed here!

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Enjoy the Performances: While unofficial street performers frequent Washington Park NY daily, this popular NYC park also features theatrical performances, events and concerts frequently when the weather allows.
  • Do Bring Your Dog: Between the Washington Park NY dog run and all the wonderful dog-lovers that frequent it, this New York park is a great way for dog-owners to meet others in NYC.
  • Don't Get Hustled: Unless you're Bobby Fischer, we recommend staying off the chess tables at Washington Square Park. We know it looks enticing, but the regulars at this NYC park may as well be professionals, and they will beat you. Just stick to the sidelines with the others. Trust us.
  • Don't Jump in the Fountain: Yes it looks refreshing, but we're not sure how sanitary the famous central fountain at Washington Square NYC is. However, it's still wonderful for throwing pennies in.
