Town Square
One of the five original squares in Philadelphia, Washington Square was laid out in 1682 and was originally called Southeast Square and at various times in the past was used as a potter's field, a burial yard for strangers in the city, then used as a burial ground for fallen troops in George Washington's Army.  The place was improved starting in 1815 with a tree planing program and landscape updating.   It was renamed in 1825 to honour the first President.

I give it a 5 because there is some awesome night life in that area and I got to watch the sunrise while I was there. Amazing!
