Washington Square Park

On this beautiful day, I was expecting to see some more chess players finding spots to play at the park- but no luck. The construction scene where the tables once were is still a mess. On the brighter side...with a stroll by the Village Chess Shop, I discovered some of the old WSP cement chess tables set up outside their place. I'm glad they were snatched up and put to good use.

Off to find a game...

Update: From the sign in front of the construction site (NYC's Park and Recreation Department)..."The chess plaza is being restored with new game tables." Scheduled completion is Fall 2010. Wiki has a good summary of the park's renovation. I also want to note chess players now play on the North West side of the park. Along with some scrabble and bridge players!
