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.

August 2018—I was not sure that I had ever seen a Hare Krishna Troup. They were great 👍. Set up in the park to recruit members and spread the word. I’m a Jesuit educated so I listened politely

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.
