Village Parks and Gardens Round-Up

Washington Square Park.

Washington Square Park.

Autumn is in the air here in the Village! As the leaves start to change and the air becomes cooler and more crisp, what better way to enjoy than out and about in some Greenwich Village greenspace?  In addition to providing some bucolic backdrop, the parks in the Village are as historic as the buildings.  Below we have rounded up our favorite posts on these enticing esplanades.  So the next time you go to the park to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, be sure to keep in mind that enjoying one of our neighborhood parks and gardens is another way of enjoying all the Village has to offer!
