What a difference thirty years makes. Union Square used to be a major drug den with a methadone clinic and an empty department store at its edge and any sensible person would have avoided it in the 1980's. You just did not go in this...More

A gathering spot in New York and easy Square to reach with good subway connections. It has it all! Dog Park, Farmer's Market, rap nights, chess players, Christmas Market. It's a gathering spot for New York!

Grand place. Very peaceful piece of real estate right in the heart of NYC. One of my favorite places. A nice break from a very active city.

Seems more "real" than most parts of Manhattan, only 20 minutes from the touristy hustle and bustle of Times Square but you could be on another planet. Feels like a community of locals enjoying everyday stuff , lots of cafes, bookshops, clothing stores, not far...More

I've been coming here (alone)since I was 13 years old or so. Back then to listen to the speakers! Today the skyline has changed, and the good part is that the park is full of wonderful food and other vendors. Great atmosphere

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

architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was

If the choice were to stay near union square or upper west side near Central Park which would be the better choice as for nearby attractions, restaurants, ease of walking to 911 museum & new tower.

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
