Abingdon Square

Abingdon Square [Google Maps]

A pleasant piece of green in between some classic low-rise West Village apartments. The park comes to life when 10,000 tulip bulbs bloom and create a spectacular springtime display in late April. Stop by during Halloween to see the yearly Pumpkin Patch, a large display of jack-o-lanterns carved by local residents. In November, there is a tree lighting with food and caroling. Abingdon Square may not be as famous as some larger parks, but it ranks as one of the oldest parks in the entire city!

A very small triangle at Hudson St, Eighth Ave, West 12th Street in Manhattan


Founded April 22, 1831 — 187 years ago
