If this whopper of an opening from the WSP Blog is any indication, anger hasn't subsided over the renovation of Washington Square Park: "I don't know how many New York City parks these are installed in (I'll try to find out), if NYPD is leading the way at Washington Square Park or if it's just been determined by the Bloomberg Administration that Washington Square Park is the park that needs to be pacified, with its bohemian, free-wheeling past spirit buried underneath leveled off concrete plazas and aligned Tisch fountains, but New York City Police Department surveillance cameras are being installed as you read this with the construction of Phase II Redesign at Washington Square Park."
