Getting around New York on foot is often easier if you are someone like me, who gets a bit confused with their "Downtown" and " Uptown" on the subway-and then there are all the added surprises along the way such as discovering the Winston Churchill Square. This tiny park is located near Washington Square which is the fascinating unofficial town square of Greenwich village. It was once a potter's field and a square for public executions and for a long time development was prevented as it was a paupers buriel ground. Nowadays it plays host to all sorts of activities;street performers, buskers, children playing and an almost outdoor casino with men determinedly playing speed chess.
Which leaves me speeding off for the next appointment at MoMA! I discover along the way that the Faberge Easter Egg hunt raised $1.6 million for art programmes in New York city public schools and for the conservation group " Elephant Family".
