Smack in the East Village, Washington Square Park is a fine place to spend afternoons and evenings.
Used to be a haven for dealers dealing in skanky pot. Used to be a fine place to spend warm summer nights well past midnight. It's all changed thanks to Giuliani. Cops start chasing people out at 11pm, and security cameras have pretty much thinned out the dealers.
Famous for housing the world's largest concentration of black squirrels.
