Happy New Year!!! To celebrate 2017, we are going to visit a special location in New York. Our first tour is in Washington Square Park, in ‘The Village’.
Remember The Village is the centre of art and music? Yes, there are many nice restaurants and Jazz clubs there.
But Washington Square Park is in The Village too, and it’s very special. Near the park there is an important school: New York University (or NYU). It was built in 1830.
Many students live in NYU housing. They like to study in the park.
Inside the park there is a water fountain and a big arch.
There you can sit and chill, play chess or listen to live music.
LISTEN TO LIVE MUSIC
(Pronunciation: LÍSS-en tu LÁIV MÍU-zic)
Some people get married in the park.
And some artists – like Madonna – express their art and their political opinion there.
In November she did a surprise-show in the park to support Hillary Clinton!
Next Wednesday you will visit famous film locations in The Village – remember to access Enjoy Portal 😉
