Spring is on walks are fun

Love to see you on one of my Marc’s Village Walks. The trees in Greenwich Village are in bloom and look beautiful now.

After the Washington arch was completed two statues of Washington were added. One of Washington as the soldier and the other as Washington the statesman. The latter was sculpted by Alexander Calder, the father of the artist of the same name who created the mobile. You will note in the picture a small door on the side of the arch. It is thru this door that a group along with the visiting French artist Marcel Duchamp broke in during the 1917 Armory art show, went to the roof and declared “the republic of Greenwich Village”.
