The Washington Square Park Project uses photography, recorded testimony, and song to revive the spirit and characters of Washington Square Park in the mid-1980’s. Adapted from photographs and fieldwork by my father (Lee Wexler) in 1985 through 1987, each song in the piece portrays someone who connected deeply with the park; who called it home in some way.

Lyrics by Mark Sonnenblick
Susana and Tom win a fabulous cruise that will fix all of their problems. Then the boat fabulously breaks down and they're stuck floating in the Caribbean with furious passengers, spoiled food, and a wild tiger that's escaped from its cage...
Make Your Own (Music and Lyrics by Ben Wexler)
