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
