But it's not the most comfortable. It tries to be a park, but it really is just a plaza. The Krishnas often chant during the day, and there are usually stunt performers. And then there is, of course, stuff like StantaCon, No Pants Day, and...More

Just a few subway stops south of Grand Central Station, this is a wonderful city square/park. Under the watchful eye of the Empire State Building and the gold tipped Met Life Tower, this square has it all!!! At the very core is a somewhat tranquil,...More

I walked through Union Square Park yesterday on my way to a wine dinner, and marveled again at the grand statue of George Washington. This park was full of life, people doing all sorts of things, and many people just watching everything. So was I...More

Union Sq is where I like to hang around most in the city. There are plenty of shops and things going on around Union Square, it's also a good area for shopping without the touristy chaos of Times Square area.

The place is great as a part and on weekends as a farmer's market. In the market you can get apple cider and products, breads and pastries including a huge selection of gluten free.

Try to visit Union Square on a day the green market is open. It's a wonderful place to stroll and take in the array of market goods. The park is always alive with other "attractions" such as street entertainers, vendors, preachers, political speakers, etc. It's...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was

I personally think Union Square is too far from the Freedom Tower and 911 to walk to. Central Park is even further away. In either case you'll be most likely using the subway or taxi. Central Park is close to the Museum... More
