Washington Square Park: Square of Youth

Washington Square Park, NYC

One of my favorite things to do in NYC was to take on the city by strolling through an entire borough from one favorite spot to another. One of my beloved walks was beginning at Washington Square Park and walking uptown on 5th Avenue until I reached Bryant Park. While Central Park may be the most well-known or largest park in New York, I had a love first for the Square. It sits in the middle of New York University’s campus and is always filled with the youthful glow of students – of all ages from all over the country and world. It’s a much smaller park, but filled with activity – even when it’s raining. As for Bryant Park, with it being in midtown – close to Rockefeller Center and Times Square – there’s always something going on based on the seasons. The Square, to me, was a place I could always go to just sit and breathe between grabbing a quick bite to eat and visiting a large coffee shop or my favorite bookstore nearby, Strand Bookstore.

I hope you enjoy a few pictures I took of the park when my brother and his friends came to visit.
