On any given day a walk through Tappan Square could lead to a performance, art exhibit, or even a wedding day photo shoot. On this day, grassy spaces were used as outdoor classrooms; a tree trunk, benches, and the Memorial Arch made for great study nooks; and the peaceful atmosphere was used as a place to socialize and recharge.
