    We've observed the ongoing makeover of the northwest quadrant of Washington Square Parkfrom afar, but finally, we slipped inside the chain-link fencing with our cameras at the ready. In the photogallery above, note the crew of professional stoners, busy as ever laying super-sized stones where the Park's fountain used to spout. See also the lush new flora being spread about, giving this entire section of the park a woodsy wonderland look. So what if it's costing a gazillion smackeroos? When fully planted, and the new fountain is flowing, this might once again be the perfect place for weekend trips, happy trails and hanging out when the munchies attack. Straight alignments were never the point in these parts.
