Time Out NY The hippies who famously turned up and tuned out in Washington Square Park are still there in spirit, and indeed often in person. In warmer months the park--which was once a potters field--is one of the best people-watching spots in the city, hummings with musicians and street artists, while skateboarders clatter near the base of the iconic 1895 Washington Arch (a modest replica of Pariss Arc de Triomphe). Plus, kids can splash in the area's new fountain on sweltering days.
