Last Friday, the day after Hercules dumped 6 inches of snow on Manhattan, kids both little and big, had a ball in a Washington Square Park winter wonderland. Some of them built a “hill” to sled down on the side of the fountain, while others made snow angels. The park used to have three small play “mounds,” which were Downtown’s only hills. However, their replacements, in the park’s Phase III renovation project, which is slated to open sometime soon, will be depressed below ground level.
