Washington Square Park

Local nameWashington Square Park
LocationNew York City, USA

Washington Square Park is one of the most well-known parks in New York City, a place of respite as well as a meeting place and a site of several major protests in the recent years. When visiting, do not forget to sit down and play a game of chess at the park's trademark chess tables.

The park was first opened in 1871 and spans over 9.75 acres of land. Apart from flower beds, trees and well-kept grassy areas, the park showcases the large Washington Square Arch, modelled after the world-famous Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and constructed in 1892.

If you think you may have seen the park before, you may be right. It features in several movies, and it was one of the major locations in the post-apocalyptic scenario movie I Am Legend, with the hero of the movie having set his main camp just next to it.
