Washington Square Park: April 1936. No Fences… very sparsely landscaped but very inviting. This shot is facing North. Fountain is to the left unaligned to the Arch and in the location it had been since 1871 in the center – the east-west axis – of the Park until the redesign of the space this year by Bloomberg Administration.
(It does feel a bit like a University campus tho’, doesn’t it?)
The tree in the foreground is apparently no longer there and was made into a totem pole. Is that still there?
