In the park itself you’ll see a number of statues of prominent historic figures. The equestrian statue of George Washington is arguably the most famous of the group; however, upon touring the square, you’ll also come across Abraham Lincoln, the Marquis de Lafayette, and Mahatma Gandhi cast in stone. Wander around the area with your cappuccino, relaxing on a park bench or shopping in the nearby stores. When you’re done for the day, take the short walk back to your hotel to watch the sun set from a terrace. Rally your energy for The City that Never Sleeps and grab a meal at one of the nearby restaurants or throw in the towel and watch a movie in your hotel room and crawl under the covers for a good night’s sleep.
