New Deal Washington Square - Photo #67 - Washington Square Park playgrounds

There are two small playgrounds in Washington Square Park which I didn't photograph; these images are from the Local Ecologist website[1]. Three playgrounds were built here in 1941 by the WPA[2,3]. One of these is still at the Fifth Avenue entrance to park; I don't have information about the other two.
