Sir Winston Churchill Square, resting at the SW junction of Bleecker and Downing Streets with 6th Avenue, is a .05acre garden and sitting area in Manhattan, New York City. New York City Department of Parks & Recreation purchased the parcel in 1943. George Vellonakis designed the sitting area, which was rebuilt from 1998 to 1999. The Bedford Downing Block Association assists with the square's maintenance. Professor Emeritus Bert Waggott, of Cooper Union and Pratt Institute, has overseen all maintenance since Spring 2002, until his passing in May 2014. Prof. Waggott ran a crew of volunteers - yet still performed the lion's share of what remains to this day, thanks to the efforts of his Widow Rosemarie, a vibrantly colorful and lovely park.
