The Washington Arch is a marble triumphal arch built in 1892 in Washington Square Park in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. It celebrates the centennial of George Washington's inauguration as President of the United States in 1789 and forms the grand southern terminus of Fifth Avenue. The monument was modeled by Stanford White on the Arc de Triomphe, built in 1806, in Paris (itself modeled on the Arch of Titus, Rome).
