Washington Square Walking Tour by Dianne L. Durante

On this walking tour, we see the elegant Washington Arch and visit with Generals Garibaldi and Sheridan, plus businessman Alexander Lyman Holley. This 1 3/4-hour talk is designed as a walking tour (1/2 mile), but can be given seated and/or indoors, if the weather is uncooperative or attendees prefer a less strenuous tour.

Here are the sculptures we’ll visit. Don’t be surprised if the stories you hear change which one’s your favorite!
