“No matter what time, even at night, this archway invites all artists and tourists alike! Sit around the fountain, go to Pommes Frites and bring back some french fries to eat as you people watch. Or even go for an iced coffee, or just stop through. NYU students are around, as are artists who will engage with you and ask you to go out of your comfort zone and participate in something new! ”
