Your 30 Plus Teams Tour of New York City is going to be over in four days .
But because this is New York City and there’s so much to see and do , the three of you have extended your stay in New York City .
That’s right , ALL THREE OF YOU .
You still had plenty of places to see , museums to visit and all those restaurants to try to eat in .
Today you’re going to the NOHO section of the city to visit Washington Square Park and see that arch that looks like the Arc Du Triomphe in Paris .
Your cousins , who have both decided that they want to move to New York City permanently , tell you that NOHO stands for ” North of Houston Street . ”
They also inform you that New Yorkers say” Howston , not Houston , like the city in Texas . ”
The three of you get off the train at Eighth Street , but it looks like the three of you aren’t the only ones getting off .
This stop happens to be the stop for New York University or NYU , so a lot of students are getting off .
The campus seems to be a part of Washington Square Park .
The three of you see the big arch in front of you .
It’s known as the Washington Memorial Arch .
It was built in 1892 to honor the 100th anniversary of George Washington’s inauguration
in 1792 .
The sight of the arch leaves the three of you speechless , just like seeing the one in Paris did when the three of you visited there .
No, that wasn’t a 30 Plus Teams Tour .
On either side of the arch , there are two figures of Washington .
The figures are titled , ” Washington at War ” and ” Washington at Peace . ”
They’re supposed to represent Washington as a Revolutionary War general and as President .
The three of you take pictures of yourselves at the arch and then head over to your next destination .
