Heat Wave

New Yorkers have been doing everything they can to cool off since oppressive heat has gripped the New York area. The city has opened public "cooling centers" (air-conditioned public spaces), and set up water fountains in high-traffic areas throughout the city. In Washington Square Park, kids and adults alike find some relief wading in the park's central fountain (pictured above last weekend). 

The fountain and Washington's arch are the two prominent features of Washington Square Park which is bordered by Washington Square North (Waverly Place east and west of the park), Washington Square East (University Place north of the park), Washington Square South (West 4th Street east and west of the park), and Washington Square West (MacDougal Street north and south of the park).
