New York City Landmark Squares & Streetscapes Photos

New York's squares and parks define the districts of Manhattan. Many of these squares are the result of Broadway running diagonally across the grid system of streets. Because the parks were desirable locations, they fostered interesting architecture & streetscapes around their peripheries which visitors now enjoy. Included on this index are not only the parks but also some of the important streetscapes and districts.
