    A great impressive arch (reminded me of the "Arc de Triomphe" in Paris 😉), also a nice fountain ....

    We went there in the morning and were bystanders at a special "show" ! Plenty of NYU students had graduation "photo shootings" and were nicely dressed up for this happening 🌞, very cute.

    Busy with plenty of tourists, but also local people enjoy this little green oasis.

    A lot of benches, but many were dirty/bird poop .... the whole park smelled of weed, which is allowed to be smoked in NYC (I noticed that many tourists aren't aware of this policy and were kind of apprehensive/thought they were visiting a "dangerous drug dealers park" 🤣 ).

    Don't miss this place 🤗

    Being a massive friends fan since it started. I was visiting NY for a few days and this was on my list to do. It’s a relatively easy walk to get to thanks to Apple Maps it’s just like it was shown on the show. Obviously I had to get the iconic picture

    Pier 45 is a very long pier with a great view of the skyline. There weren’t many people there when I went, and it can be quite windy, but there is a great view of New Jersey as well as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.

    We visited the Stonewall gardens as a family. Our daughter has a picture book on Stonewall, and it was important to us for her to be able to make a physical connection to the place. Suggest using the QR codes on the photos to look up who the people are as you walk along the fence.

    The famous actress, Carrie Bradshaw’s apartment from the TV show. It’s only an apartment and really boring. Not worth going out of your way to see.

    This neglected building stands on the corner between Christopher St and Grove St. In this area of high priced property, it seemed remarkable that a building of such size could be left empty and forlorn. I knew from my guide book that it had been built as a dispensary to care for the poor but as I was intrigued to know more, I did a bit more research. Apparently, the dispensary had to close after incurring legal debts arising from being sued for their refusal to treat a person with Aids. The building was later sold to a property acquirer William Gottlieb and since his death has been owned by his descendants. The deeds impose tight restrictions on further use and so the property remains empty. A proposal to open it as a resource for homeless people has been thwarted which seems a shame given current need and the intentions of the original owners. I think I will check  on any future progress as it has whetted my appetite to follow the story.

    Father Demo Square is a fairly standard public space with a fountain and some parks. It's a good meeting spot since it is well known and in a good location. However, it doesn't appear to have the same TLC as other spots, especially with the always well-kept Washington Square Park so close.

    I don't know how many times I walked past this statue before I finally Googled Giuseppe Garibaldi. I read a very good summary on Untapped, which I recommend, of why he is honored in the US. However, after doing the research, this statue's location seems rather odd. It should really be in Staten Island.
