  • Abingdon Square Park in the West Village is one of New York City's oldest parks. It is maintained by the Abingdon Square Conservancy, a community-based park association. The square was originally part of a 300-acre estate bought by Sir Peter Warren in 1740. Abingdon Square was named for a prominent eighteenth century area resident, Charlotte Warren, who married Englishman Willoughby Bertie, the 4th Earl of Abingdon and received the land as a wedding gift from her father. Although most explicitly British place names in Manhattan were altered after the Revolutionary War, Abingdon Square retained its name due to the well-known patriotic sympathies of Charlotte and the Earl.
