Bleecker Street Playground


Address: Hudson Street and Bleecker Street, New York, US

The first park of its kind (circa 1966) in New York City, this neighborhood playground has become somewhat of an institution. The land was part of the original 1830 land grant from the Bleecker family farm and, thanks to a succeeding grant in the late ’90s, the park has since undergone recent renovations: landscaping, improved lighting and playground equipment, as we as decorative art that reflects the history and architecture of the surrounding Greenwich Village.
