     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’.

THE VILLAGE (or: GREENWICH VILLAGE)  (Pronunciation: THE Vi-lãdj or GRÍN-uitch Vi-lãdj)

     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.

NYU = New York University  (Pronunciation: NÚ YORK iu-ni-VÊR-ci-ry)

NYU = New York University

     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.
