Garibaldi in Washington Square

A Statue of Garibaldi in Washington Square Park, NYC.

This is a NYC Street Photography image of a Statue of Garibaldi in Washington Square Park, NYC. A woman is sitting at the base of the monument and people are passing by as Garibaldi’s statue is drawing his sword.

Excerpt from NYC Parks departments website:

This monument is dedicated to General Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807–1882), the 19th century Italian patriot who crusaded for a unified Italy during the European era of state building.

Washington Square Park is an interesting place to create New York Street Photography images. There are diverse groups of people that pass through the village, including NYU students, local New York residents, homeless New Yorkers, and even tourists. Washington Square Park was once a popular location in NYC for drug transactions, but there have been efforts to clean up the park. It’s a great place to hang out in New York, and a great place for street photography and New York Photography.

This image was included in The “New Yorker” Exhibition at the Istanbul Museum of Photography.
