What locals are saying . . .

Acting as the hearth of Greenwich Village, this downtown public park is one where people-watching, eating, drinking, and public performance occur every day. Marked by the tall Archway, you can't miss this destination as you venture downtown into the artsy neighborhoods of New York's downtown. Sit by the fountain, enjoy the live music played by street performers and soak in the energy. Observe NYU students passing through the park on their way to class. On your way out, make sure to throw a coin into the center fountain, wishing you'll make your way back to this lively and relaxing place once again.
