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.

Subway stop right in park. big Whole Foods with huge selection of ready to eat food on edge of park. Has nice place to enjoy food with view also. Walk west then south to enter Greenwich. A lot going on usually in park but civilized.

Passed by on a weeknight, and there were Hare Krishnas, street musicians, lots of strange clothes, and strange hair colors. The streets full of young people.

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.
