This park is well maintained and obviously gets a lot of love! It's a nice little quiet spot compared to the rest of New York City, and, unlike some other parks, is very clean. The rangers are helpful and informative, and whoever runs the park changes things up occasionally. Well worth the visit, and it's surrounded by history!
The day I went to visit the plaza,that was during the month of June, and specially this year 2019, there was the 50 years commemoration of the Stonewall Inn uprising. The mood was festive despite an strong presence of police while all kind of people- families, young, old, group of students, couples were there taking pictures. I think this plaza is a very distinctive part of NYC that needs to be visited to understand why so many people that feel non welcome in their towns in United States and the world feel they have found their family, their tribe in the few blocks of Greenwhich Village, and they never want to leave.
