We stumbled upon Union square while walking through Manhattan and loved the vibe at the place that we ended up taking a break and spent almost an hour. It is a great place to relax and unwind in the NY madness. We missed the Christmas...More

We visited for the Holiday market, and enjoyed the variety of goods. Some very unique, local gifts. Lots of people, but not so many that we couldn't shop. Felt very festive. Fun way to spend some time in the city at Christmas time

Just happened upon the great Christmas market and found lots of presents to bring home with me! Was so excited to see vendors from Santa Fe that I recognized from a past trip there!

We went on Saturday to the craft and farmers market. It was fun, but busy. Be sure to see the farmers market even if you are not going to buy anything. Wow. What beautiful fruits and veggies. Lots of good restaurants in the area.

Relax, walk, shop (sometimes), people-watch. It's one of many little parks in Manhattan. Sometimes, you just need a break from constantly going.

Headed to Union Square to see the Chihuly and had the added bonus of stumbling upon an incredible farmer's market on Saturday. The assortment of vegetables, fresh breads, cheese and spirits was amazing. An experience for the senses! And don't miss the Chihuly!

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
