Union Square has a year-round greenmarket, where you can sample goods from local farmers. It also has several playgrounds, a lively holiday market, and benches where you can watch a slice of New York go by.

Love Union Square. So much excitement. Everyone doing their thing. The vibe is lit. Love all the stores/shopping all around the area. I would love to live in this area if I was living in NY. As busy as it is, you can just come...More
I came here just to walk around and take in the sights of Lower Manhattan. Union Square park is very cute and a great place to hide from the sun on very hot days. There is a little area with tables and chairs, great to...More
Historically this was a park where union members and labor activists had their assemblies and protests. Now it is another one of the areas of great prosperity, fabulous restaurants and bars, nice green space, splendid architecture. Definitely work a visit.
The good, the bad and the ugly: Union Square Park is a nice sized park in the heart of downtown Manhattan. It is somewhat between the Theatre District and Canal Street,/Chinatown and Chelsea/Lower Eastside.There are many smaller events happening within, one of them the weekend...More
Located between 4th & 5th avenue along 14th to 17th streets is the Union Square Park. This is the place to visit on a weekend when there is a huge ‘Farmer’s Market’ active along side the park. On a clear day the whole place is...More

Packed into every square foot is something wonderful. The green space, accompanied by all of the park-like landscaping is relaxing. It is a vibrant area consisting of the various arts and open-air market.

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
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 mile (Met, Moma, Frick, Natural History) and Columbus Circle. Union Square is closer to Greenwich Village, Soho, China Town, Empire State Building, Highline. Rockefeller Center, Times Square, and Broadway are in between the two locations you mentioned. As far as restaurants go, regardless of where you stay, there's an overabundance of places to eat in any price range.
