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!
