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
When the weather is nice, this place is always filled with people and performing artists. There will always be places to sit down and people watch. To see and to be seen. Sometimes I would buy some food or drink nearby and enjoy it in...More
I visit Union Square regularly. There is as much or as little as you prefer to do. There are steps and park benches to rest on. There are many surrounding stores to shop for almost anything. There is a Best Buy for electronics, a DSW...More
I’ve never been to Union Square until a friend told me to go buy something at a store they only have there. Not only did I find what I wanted for a great price but also got to visit this amazing area. It’s impressive how...More
You can buy fresh veggies, fruits, breads, flowers and more all year.
I like to be there during summer time. It’s beautiful to watch.
Try a cup of apple cider. You can cool down with cold cider or warm up with hot cider. Pretzels are...More
This is a lovely neighborhood for a NYC visit. It is within walking distance or a short cab ride to many of the New York sites, and the Wednesday Farmer's Market on Union Square is not to be missed! The W Hotel staff and accommodations...More
20 years ago I thought visiting Starbucks was a treat . Now ?! No airconditioning - sorry about that , “ we do not do restrooms anymore “ ( but you still sell liquids ! ) - the A.C. works and is sooooo cold you...More
A wonderful green space in lower Manhattan to rest after a morning of walking. Lots of trees, people watching and tons of places to grab a bite. We were there on a Saturday morning with a very busy farmers’ market.
We visit Union Square and the surrounding area every time we are in New York City. We love the farmer's market and the Christmas open house, the Strand. ABC Kitchen and Max Brenner just to name a few things. I enjoy a bagel in the...More
I agree with the above recommendation to eat at Whole Foods, but you can also walk back up Broadway and eat at Eataly on 23rd and Fifth Ave. That's an experience in and of itself. Or hit the green market when its open. Can't... More
I agree with the above recommendation to eat at Whole Foods, but you can also walk back up Broadway and eat at Eataly on 23rd and Fifth Ave. That's an experience in and of itself. Or hit the green market when its open. Can't go wrong in the area. THere's even a breakfast cafe on the second floor near the Barnes and Nobles.
For diner type food I like Joe Juniors on 16th and Third. But if you want high end stuff eat at the restaurants on the West side of Union Sq.

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.
