Washington Square Park

5th Avenue, Manhattan, New York, United States
112 reviews

This is so New York! Enter at the famous Washington Square Arch, watch people at the fountain area and admire the surrounding buildings (mostly owned by NYU). There are play areas for children, dog runs, walking paths, picnic tables, a chess and scrabble area and plenty of memorial statues. This is a safe park in the heart of Greenwich Village ...

    Blue Note Jazz Club

    9 reviews

    One of my absolute favorite venues. This is a very intimate setting, great experience for any jazz artist. Here is the deal, you buy a ticket to a show but it is General admission seating. Get to the venue by 8pm for the late show (1030p) and you'll stand in line to get on to the list for seats, best ...

    I have seen about a handful of celebrity comedians here.... everytime I come it is a therapeutic experience of intense laughter. The best comedy club in NYC hands down.

    One of the best independent theaters in New York City. There are regular short films shown along with a mix of independent films that are unique to this theater. If you're into movies and want to see something unique I highly recommend it.

    Citarella - Avenue of the Americas

    0.24 mi from Washington Square Park
    2 reviews

    A great supermarket in greenwich village. Their fresh baked breads/pastries, meats and cheeses are excellent. They also have amazing homemade pasta sauces and tapenades. Their produce is extremely fresh, affordable and doesn't spoil easily. The con of this place is some boxed items can be overpriced.

    Fat Black Pussycat

    0.18 mi from Washington Square Park
    1 review

    My favorite bar in college. The Fat Black is located in the West Village, one of the most famous party neighborhoods in New York. The Fat Black Pussycat's greatest attribute is the lounge in the back. There are many niches of velvet thrones and couches with chandeliers overhead. The music is extremely varied.

    Great speakeasy in NYC! The spots is unmarked except for the white rabbit painted on the black doors. There are a couple steps leading down to the doors. Once you walked in, it's dark with red lighting. The menu is mostly beer...US, British, German, Irish, etc. There aren't that many seats in here...maybe about 10. I thought this spot was ...

    73 reviews

    The epicentre of a bustling mix of activities, Union Square is a must stop in downtown NYC. The park is great for a lunch break on a sunny day, although sketchy at night. The Green Market is delightful, filled with fresh produce, flowers and artisan items, as is the artsy scene of musicians on the steps. Union Square also offers ...

    The Union Square Greenmarket is the perfect stop if you're on the way to a picnic, or just want some fresh produce and unique homemade goods to brighten up your pantry. I had some excellent hot cider here, as well as some really tasty duck sausage and ostrich jerky. My favourite was the sheep's milk cheese with caraway seeds. Everything ...

    For a bikers paradise and a NYC piece of greenery and fresh air by the Hudson River, look no further than the West Side Highway Bike Path. It goes the length of the entire West Side Highway, all the way from the tip of Manhattan at Battery Park, up by Battery Park City, the North Cove Marina, past the skate ...

    Stuy town is one of those rare corners of Manhattan where you see a lot of young couples with their kids. I should know, since my brother lives here with his wife and daughter. They regularly go for walks in the green spaces between the massive brick apartment complexes.

    I have been to New York City at least 20 times in my life and just recently went to see the Flatiron Building for the 1st time! It is narrow and really impressive and I actually could not stop taking pictures of it from all different angles. Go see it!

    Living a block away from Tompkins Square Park makes this my favorite park in the City not just for it's proximity, but also for all that it has to offer. I've lived in the East Village for over a decade and I've seen the park transform from a shanty town to a first rate NYC Park. I can't count how ...

    The Biergarten is a lager wonderland for beer connoisseurs. Oktoberfest occurs 365 days a year at this spot nestled outdoors underneath the Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking district. When you walk in, grab a beer from an overwhelming list, park at one of many picnic tables filled with friendly strangers, and toast with them.

    Walking along the Hudson River Park is a great way to forget that you are in New York City proper. The fresh(er) air and green(er) spaces are a welcome relief from the concrete. A bit windy in the winter, but if you're well covered it can be nice nonetheless.

    REI is gearhead heaven. I came with my buddy in search for the latest Go Pro 3. While patiently waiting for the employee stationed in the area, another employee came from across the section to come and answer our questions. He seemed knowledgeable and was able to inform us the difference in the two versions we were looking at. Since ...

We got to HH around 3 PM on Sunday, which was the perfect time - we were able to score a few seats at a table before it got seriously packed around 4/5. The beers were pretty good, the music was awesome (they doubled ...
