Washington Square Park

This concrete space at the southern end of 5th Avenue offers New York University students an open sunny spot to eat lunch, take a break in the day, and buy marijuana in the wee hours. Time and the elements have eroded the park's adornments and buildings that are now under reconstruction. Neighborhood pups are eagerly awaiting completion of the project, and a return to their small, but nearby, run.
