Because truth be told she is the better photographer in the house! And she is showing us some interesting things to see in New York’s Greenwich Village.
Up until 2014 it provided free tuition to all its students. It is also a National Historic Landmark.
This building is located at West 4th and Broadway, 693 Broadway is its official address and it is known as the Merchants Building. From what I see there were many buildings on Broadway built this way with lots of ornate sculptures. In this case we have owls and lions. You can see them a bit better on the bottom. The striking blue cornice is a recent addition to help with the drainage of the building.
Technically speaking this area is known as NoHo. In other words, North of Houston Street. There is also a “SoHo” but we did not venture that far. Both of these neighborhoods are National Landmarks and have many historic buildings.
The Park is a meeting place for students and folks who want to share their creativity, such as this fellow who was blowing giant bubbles in the middle of the park on that cold and rainy spring day, with NYU’s Lipton Hall Dormitory in the background.
This doorway is located across the North side of the park and is one of many early 19th century row houses that were built in the Greek Revival style. Washington Square North is now owned by NYU.
Behind the row houses sits the Washington Mews. It had once been the staples for the row houses in the area. But in between the two, there is a courtyard and it is here that we found this treasure. A statue of Miguel Cervantes the famous Spanish writer and painter.
The row houses are to the right of the arch.
This shot was taken when there was construction on Fifth Avenue. We are standing under the Arch and looking up north at Fifth Avenue.
Two statues of George Washington are located on the North side of the arch. The one below is Washington at War.
