Open air, good people, music, venders, it is so much fun and so much to see and do. Check out the gardens, or just sit and have a really great time people watching (my personal fav)!

Union Square is a snapshot of New York, filled with the farmer's market, chess players, buddhist performers, musicians and some interesting fashion types. Don't miss it, just watch your wallet.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set
amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron

Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant

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
