It is a park in progress with limited services, and in the coming years services will be added to the park in cooperation with our partners. The Stonewall Inn, a bar located in Greenwich Village, New York City and the immediate area was the scene of events that began the modern struggle for the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans.

Neighbourhood: Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
How to get there
  • Christopher St – Sheridan Square • 1 min walk
  • West 4th St – Washington Square • 4 min walk

A lovely little park with significant history for the Gay Rights movement in the USA.
Feb. 2020
A pleasant little park in Greenwich Village that is the home to the Stonewall National Monument statue by sculptor George Segal. On 28th June 1969 the Stonewall Inn was raided and 13 people were arrested which was the start of mass demonstrations around equal rights for the gay community. Well worth a visit if walking in the vicinity and an important piece of equality history.

Important Piece of History
Nov. 2019
How fortunate that the Stonewall Inn has been preserved as a reminder of the days when certain freedoms did not extend to all of our citizens. Besides the inn itself, the Stonewall National Monument across the street memorializes the fight for gay rights. It's worth a look and should be used as a teaching moment for the next generation, as we continue to strive for equality.

Our History.
May 2019
My wife and I, along with our friend who is a gay man, deeply enjoyed this place. He had been here before it was made into a National Monument but was very happy to see it again. As a young lesbian growing up in Oklahoma, I never thought I would see something like Stonewall. It was deeply moving and very serene.

Highly Recommended to anyone but especially those who are LGBTQ+ because this is where our rights started.

Cool place
Oct. 2019 • Couples
Just outside the Christopher St (1 Train) subway stop in Greenwich Village is a little park with a two National Park Rangers. They have a passport stamp and info on Stonewall. Across the street is the Stonewall Inn bar which is the location where it all happened.

Cool buildings in the area.

Great place to checkout when you are in the area.

Nice Tribute
Jul. 2019
2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Right across the street where the Stonewall Inn was located is the Stonewall National Monument, a monument/park dedicated to the LGBT rights movement.

We just walked over and sat in the park and enjoyed the historical significance of the Stonewall Inn and how far we've come in 50 years for Equality.

This monument marks an important event in the city's history, and the history of the LGBT movement. It's very important and worth a visit.

our first stop in NYC to pay our respects for 50 years since Stonewall. A really lovely monument. The statues depicting same sex love were very moving. How amazing that this is a national park?

Serene and contemplative
Jun. 2019 • Friends
It has to be one of the smallest national parks but I found it to be very relaxing. It is pretty understated even though the gay community is not typically associated with that 🌈. Maybe it was the time of day but walking in it was serene in the middle of the Village. Nice to see a mixed crowd enjoying it.
