I love their farmers market. It's every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. In the autumn getting near Christmas there is a lovely Christmas market. Great place to visit.

After a little research I found out that this square celebrated the union of Broadway and Bowery Road. It’s a busy square with shops like DSW and restaurants. On this trip I noticed men playing chess and backgammon. Perhaps this is how the locals pass...More

Flatiron District
