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.
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.
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.
