"Commemorative Arch"

Washington Square Arch stands at a height of 77 feet (23.47 meters), at the point where the Fifth Avenue meets the Washington Square Park. This marble arch is the park's most well-known monument, however this one isn't the original. The original was constructed of plaster and wood in 1889 and it was one of four arches built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of George Washington's inauguration as the President of the United States. The famed architect Stanford White designed this one three years later in 1892, however the statues of Washington on its piers were not added until 20 years later. The arch is made of Westchester marble and it is a must-visit attraction when strolling between the West and East Village or exploring around NYU.
