The New Lights for the Washington Square Arch

Great news for our majestic arch.   We just received word from Sarah Neilson at the Parks Department that the lights that shine on the Arch and make it stand out at night are bing upgraded.  They will be more energy efficient and hopefully no more flickering.  You may see some workers at the arch and the lights could be inconsistent over the next couple weeks, but be prepared for a newly lit, even more beautiful arch. 

The Washington Square Association Announces 2015 Dates for the Washington Square Music Festival
