Greenwich Village and Washington Square Park have changed greatly over the years. Long before the some of City’s wealthiest inhabitants took over, the area was full of artists and musicians, making “The Village” one of the most eclectic and artistic neighborhoods in the City. The area’s history runs deep through the City veins, and this 10 minutes video entitled Village Sunday touches on it while giving a peek at the modern era of 1960, when it was captured on film.
The park, in the past two hundred years, has been a dueling field, a potters fields, a parade ground, an execution ground and a health resort. Today, it’s just a park with trees and benches and seesaws, and that’s the way the village likes it.
