Washington Square Park

WEST VILLAGE. Washington Square is the former stomping grounds of such writers as Henry James, Mark Twain and Eugene O’Neil. The square’s famous white marble arch provides a formal entranceway into Greenwich Village, giving it an almost London-like flair. The square is the cultural and social heart of the Village, for this is the place where residents gather to watch street performers or eat lunch. On the northern side, an architect’s dream overlooks the Square ­ a row of 19th century Greek revival homes. Meanwhile, to the east is the main campus of New York University.
