Union Square has a beautiful park with a great farmers market and a huge gorgeous statue of George Washington. The place was packed on a late Saturday afternoon with New Yorkers playing, resting and having a good time.

It's a nice place to sit on the steps and watch the city and people. Plenty of buskers and chess players. Lots of people eating their lunch. For us, it was a chance to rest our weary feet from all the working around Manhattan.

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

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
