Famous dude statue: George Washington in Union Square



George Washington! There he is, pointing at the Whole Foods in Union Square. Or IS he?

Whenever I think of this statue, I imagine all the break dancers who hang out around him. There's a nice, big stretch of pavement nearby where it's fun to people watch and do sweet tricks on your skateboard. At least, it seems that way.

Fun fact: Washington is depicted on the day that he got NYC back from the British, November 25, 1783. He's giving his troops a benediction.

You can find it: 14th Street and Union Square. Go to the Whole Foods and face the park. There he is!
