Twice a year downtown art lovers get a sidewalk show to remember. So do tourists, New York University students and faculty, and anyone who happens to walk around these lucky, lively streets. This isn’t all in Washington Square Park. Instead, it’s on University Place, starting at East 13th Street and continuing south along the east side of Washington Square Park to West 3rd Street.
