A little gem in the heart of NYC. It’s really nice to sit and catch your breath whilst you check and enjoy all that New York has to offer.

Great place to eat lunch, feed the pigeons, see a protest or two, buy some great organic and locally grown fruits, vegetables and even some prepared meals. Not very cheap, but quality stuff made by small local bakers and farmers

After walking for blocks and blocks while exploring NYC, Union Square was a nice little oasis to sit and rest. A man was playing piano across the park which added a nice ambiance.

Many small booths of unique items you usually won't find in stores. This variety alone is worth the visit for the holidays for some different gifts and ideas. It's all outside, so dress for the weather.

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
