Washington Square Park Reopens
Fortunately I won't have to publish a blog post that I had been working on about how long the renovation of Washington Square Park has taken. Because as of today the park is finally open again. It's about time. Nobody ever thought it would take this long (18 months). I decided to check out the park today while walking back from an errand and I was stoked to see, all the way from 11th Street, the central fountains spurting water. I think it had probably only been open a few hours by that point. I ran into my press photographer friend Michael Appleton and together with another photographer we were able to get an escort up to the top of the arch. So without further ado, here are a few symmetry-obsessed views of the realigned fountain plus one nice moment of some crusty characters getting a little wet. Welcome back, WSP.
