The Washington Square Arch in New York.

Artists. Live jazz music. Street performers. PhD nerds. NYU students. Sunbathing tourists. A cemetery. Dog-walking locals. A children’s playground. A battleground for chess aficionados. Open tango lessons. If it weren’t for the skyscrapers surrounding Washington Square Park, one could have thought we were in Paris instead of New York.

Washington Square Park is really one of a kind, with a tradition of celebrating nonconformity. It is an open space, dominated by its landmark, the eponymous Washington Square Arch. It has stood in this spot for over one hundred years, reigning over the park’s colorful culture and history. It is an architectural beauty, designed by Stanford White, built in 1892. If you have seen Arc de Triomphe in Paris, you can probably see where White got his inspiration from, even though he looked to make this version more modern and simple than the one in Paris.

The area around Washington Square Park and Greenwich Village bursts in interesting architectural attractions. So if you are interested in learning more about the architectural beauties of New York, we recommend Build Academy’s walking tour in West Village and Chelsea, accredited by the American Institute of Architects.
