Making a better Washington Square

view map

In January of 1917, Marcel Duchamp and three other artists climbed to the top of the Arch and declared that Greenwich Village had seceded from the union to create a free and independent state devoted to the arts and literature. Alcohol was involved. We infer that President Wilson was too preoccupied with World War I to send in troops. Since that night, the door to the stairway has been kept locked.
