Union Square is an area of Manhattan bustling with activity from the farmers' markets on the weekends (seasonal) to the plethora of shops for those who want to spend a little of their hard-earned dough.
Enjoy a relaxing amble along side the river as you look out onto the New York skyline and the Statue of Liberty. If you're feeling active, this is also your spot. There are basketball courts throughout the park, as well as miniature golf, batting cages and a skate park.
What used to be commercial shipping piers have transformed into a mega sports complex. After a long work week, New Yorkers can unwind by taking advantage of the wide range of activities here. There is a golf driving range, rollerskating, ice skating, bowling, swimming and workout facilities, among other things to do. For kids, there is a theatre and video games (which you may enjoy too). Fees and hours vary.
Although hardly anyone watches hockey anymore and the Knicks are, well, how should I say this, in complete ruins, it's still nice to kick back and watch a ballgame. Who knows, maybe LeBron will be in town when you're there.
