Directions via Google Maps
As in traditional town plans in Italy, Father Demo Square is a piazza - an open space surrounded by buildings and a gathering place for its community. The popular West Village square is named for Father Antonio Demo, who was appointed the pastor of the nearby Our Lady of Pompeii church in 1900 and served the community for more than 30 years. The church still stands at the square's northwest corner, providing an elegant backdrop for the park and its central fountain.
