Must See Destinations in New York City - Washington Square Park

Opened to public in the year 1871, Washington Square Park is among the best-known landmarks in New York City. Located at the foot of Fifth Avenue, in close proximity to East Village Apartments, the park is spread over an area of 9.75 acres (39,500 m2) and is very popular with the masses even till date.

In 1826 the land west of the Minetta was purchased, the square was laid out and levelled, and this property was turned into the Washington Military Parade Ground. Military parade grounds were public spaces specified by the City where volunteer militia companies responsible for the nation's defence received their training.

The streets surrounding the square became one of the city's best known residential areas in the early nineteenth century. This includes the now-well-protected Greek Revival style houses on the north side of the park.

The park that has now come up as a cultural hotspot in NY has a rich history behind it. For many years around World War II, the park has been frequented with various American artists, writers, and activists. The park was a very popular joint among the Folk and Hippie movements in 1950s and 1960s. The outdoor chess tables on the southwest corner of the park have been popular with gaming enthusiasts since almost a century and have even led to a proliferation of Chess Shops around the park.


As recently as December 2007, New York City Department of Parks and Recreation performed a major renovation of the mark making various significant changes to the park layout. The project cost was as high as US$16 million.

So while you enjoy your comfortable stay at East Village Apartments, I would suggest not to miss a visit to the ever-so-popular Washington Square Park.

Things to remember while planning a vacation

Despite the excitement of sudden unplanned travel trips, you can gain a lot by careful planning. Not only do you end up saving money, you can also avoid unexpected hassles that may come up in your trip. After all, the last thing you want is an unexpected hiccup to spoil the holiday charm when you head for that long-awaited trip with your family.

While there is no specific guidebook for this, yet there are some key decisions that you must make well in advance. First and foremost is about the time and duration of your trip. You can save a huge amount on your air tickets if you book in advance. This holds most true for those who book their tickets online. Many a times, you will find a travel portal offering you that unbelievable deal on air tickets. Go for it!

And then it’s the question of going in ‘season’ or in ‘off-season’. While it obviously makes sense to go in the season time, yet it is in off-season that you get the best deals.

Once you have worked on the above factors, it is also prudent to finalize the stay option. Holiday Vacation Rental Apartments can save a good deal of money by opting to stay in a furnished vacation rental premises. And it’s not about savings alone, you get to enjoy the warm hospitality of the owner as opposed to the curt behaviour of the hotel staff.

Considering the above factors can help make your travel trip memorable and hassle-free.
