Day #5 - In Washington Square Park (See The Arch?)

posted by John Blanco @ 9:25 PM


After meeting up with Chris and Theresa at Union Square Park, we walked southwest to Washington Square Park. My big reason for coming here was that this is where a young Bobby Fischer learned how to play chess -- by watching the homeless people play. We never did find chess boards, but we had something else to do.

This is also where the famous arch is. This is featured in lots of NY-based movies. You can see it in "Barefoot In The Park" to name one. We took TONS of pics in front of the arch, here's just one of them. :-)
