Why locals love it

This is the city's most iconic park, with the identifiable Washington Square arch and central water fountain. It's a great spot for meeting up with friends and checking out street performers, musicians, and the frequent eccentric character.

Why you should visit it

The view of the George Washington Arch really is breathtaking, so you can't leave NYC without snapping a few photos. This beautiful park is an ideal place to stop and enjoy your surroundings, sunbathe on a warm day, or get lost in a good book.

Special tip

During the summer, it is perfectly acceptable to jump in the fountain to cool off.
