Description
The heart of New York City's Greenwich Village—lined by elegant townhouses and anchored by Stanford White's iconic Washington Arch—Washington Square Park has been a vital public space for nearly two centuries. The park is both an oasis from and an ideal of urban life, frequented by students and professionals, dog walkers and musicians, toddlers and chess players. Synonymous with the city's artistic identity, Washington Square has also witnessed waves of political and social unrest, and served as a focal point for contentious debates about the future of urban development. A museum educator and Washington Square resident Emily Kies Folpe gives us a captivating illustrated history.

"An excellent history of Washington Square from potter's field to stronghold of bohemia ... a must for any New York bookshelf."—NYDaily News

"A well-documented account of Washington Square and its vicissitudes ... that reflects its growth and change from farmland to the elite enclave described by Henry James and Edith Wharton to the present dominance of New York University.... Numerous black and white drawings, maps, and photographs help track the changes."—Kirkus Reviews
