Washington Square Arch

Today I’m showing a picture of the arch in Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village. I was just reading online that the original arch was constructed to celebrate the centennial of George Washington’s inauguration as president. That first temporary arch was so popular that a permanent one was commissioned and was modeled after the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. Washington Square Park is always a good people-watching spot.

I’m afraid I won’t be near my computer on Friday, so I can’t look at all of your beautiful photos. So I’ll wish everyone a happy weekend now and see you Monday!

superbe cet arc de triomphe, une sorte d'hommage à la France. Cela me rappelle le film "quand harry rencontre sally" au debut quand il arrive à NYC apres ce long voyage en voiture, elle le laisse là au Washington Square. Bon weekend

superb this triumphal arch, a kind of homage to France. That points out film to me “there when harry meets sally” at the beginning when it arrives at NYC after this long voyage by car, it leaves it in Washington Square. Good weekend

I like the angle. It shows the design of the inner part of that arch (ceiling part). I am just wondering about that tree branch...may be you have a reason for it.

Wish you happy weekend!!

Great picture from a wonderful arch. Passed many times under it, sometimes very, very late at night, coming from either Blue Note, Visiones or Village Vanguard (or Boxers, while it existed)...
Thanks for your visit and comment on my blog. I just left Bali and I’m posting on Singapore at Blogtrotter.
Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
