arch

You’re not the first to think this is a prime spot for a party. As the story goes, in January of 1917, Marcel Duchamp, John Sloan, Gertrude Drick, and several others in the Village scene made their way to the top, spread out a blanket, flew Chinese lanterns and balloons, drank tea, and declared Washington Square to be a free and independent republic. The group became known as “The Arch Conspirators.” Photos: An Extremely Rare Tour Inside & Atop The Washington Arch
