NYC - The Official Guide

The Chess Forum


The Chess Forum, open daily from 11am to midnight, was founded in 1995 by a former employee of the Village Chess Shop. It offers a similarly diverse range of sets, software and accessories. (Those who want to play with characters from TheLord of the Rings or Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series, be advised.) Chess is a crowd favorite in Washington Square Park, where the game is played outdoors year-round.
