“President s Day Feb 20th 2012”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

spent the day at Union Square with two of my closest peeps went to the farmer s market and i had gone to Whole Foods for the first time. although I admit place is pricey too pricey I d say since I had spent fourteen dollars on two items. oh well .otherwise Union Square is a great place to spend the day and the park is fabulous. i recommend Union Square a place to explore for tourists who are first visiters of NYC

“It's a new world”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Ity used to be a derelict hangout. It is now filled with people having a relaxing day and the best greenmarket in the city 4 days a week. What a transformation!

“Just a Subway stop.”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

This is a nice little park for those that live in the neighborhood. The fresh market, although boasts locally grown produce is way to expensive.

“Shop, eat (some chocolate), rest, usnbathe watch the passing parade”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

There's enough to keep you busy an entire afternoon. Don't miss Chocolate by the Bald Man around the corner on Broadway.


There's enough here to keep you busy an entire afternoon. Don't miss Chocolate by the Bald Man just below 14th St. on Broadway.
