Fascinating area with so much to see! Really good retail stores, plus many coffee shops, restaurants etc. Wide open spaces on the square, Easy to wander around.

Union square is a great place if you enjoy people watching. From local workers, to tourists, to farmers market vendors, to street hawkers and entertainers, there is a huge mix of people here. The farmers market is interesting, with much delicious and unusual produce. I...More

Lots of movement with street vendors and a market. Always someone playing music or singing or both collecting coins for their efforts. Very New York. Not so much a destination as a stop over or stop by if you are in the area.

It was fun to walk around but the prices were a little high for some gifts which just weren't worth it. Nice to get in to a holiday spirit though.

Union Square Christmas market- After visiting Bryant Park and Columbus circle markets it seems that the vendors are all selling the same items, to which we found lacking interesting items. This market was particularly busier than the others so if you want slightly less crowds,...More

Lots of great street performers, from dancers to musicians. I like sitting there and just enjoying food. Quite scenic with the arch and fountain, there is a dog park as well.

There is always something going on at Union Square. Be sure to go if there are markets on! A somewhat iconiic place to see if travelling through New York but definitely not something you MUST do if you're running short on time.

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
