Union Square Christmas market- After visiting Bryant Park and Columbus circle markets it seems that the vendors are all selling the same items, to which we found lacking interesting items. This market was particularly busier than the others so if you want slightly less crowds,...More

Lots of great street performers, from dancers to musicians. I like sitting there and just enjoying food. Quite scenic with the arch and fountain, there is a dog park as well.

There is always something going on at Union Square. Be sure to go if there are markets on! A somewhat iconiic place to see if travelling through New York but definitely not something you MUST do if you're running short on time.

Visited Union Square during Dec '17 and roamed around the dozens of stalls set up for the Christmas bazar. All very cute and unique. Nice mix of vendors selling "stuff" and food. Bought a cute NYC Firefighter tee shirt for my granddaughter.

An astonishing farmers' market here with an incredible selection of fresh produce. I have never seen so many different varieties of apples. It is a bit surreal to see all these stalls in the shadow of the Empire State building. Great restaurant options all around...More

Yes it’s a tourist trap. Yes every major city has these little Christmas villages that pop up at this time of the year. But it’s still fun to check out, if you’re into that kind of thing.

I enjoy Union Square, there is lots to do. There are all sorts of restaurants and clothing stores. I frequent the Farmer's Market that is right in the middle of everything, I love it here. Mushrooms, fish, apples, bread, eggs, cheese and fresh veggies are...More

Union Square in New York City is a meeting place of the east and west side. You have the Park and numerous transit options. Most subway lines pass thru Union Square. There are many vendors and stalls here with folks selling crafts, clothing and food....More

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
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was

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
