Photohunters: Creative and Famous Places

In combining the two photohunters themes (creative and famous places) this week, I went to my photo archives for shots I took in Greenwich Village which is a famous and creative Manhattan neighborhood.
I've used many of these shots before but they seemed particularly good for both themes.
I was in Washington Square Park (a historic Greenwich Village Park) when I took these shots, and this park has hosted many creative artist performances through the years.
The park was being renovated so it was fairly empty when I was there.
The buildings below are part of the NYU campus and that is certainly a campus with a lot of creative artists. Martin Scorsese directed a number of short films while he was a student at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. He has also taught there (to drop one famous creative name).

It's been years since I visited New York -- and been in the US, in fact. But I have memories of being in Greenwich Village. Is there a big bookstore near that Washington Square Park? I think I sat out in the park for a bit to recover from a blissful visit to the bookstore... ;b
