Happily stumbled upon this place with my wife whilst out and about. Really nice little square surrounded by lots of vibrant ambience and people, great shops and places to eat.

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.
Clearly for all of them, it was their place to be seen. It was crazy noisy and
wild.

Lots of shopping and restaurants in 3 directions from Union Square
(not as much on the way uptown, but along 14th Street and going down
to NYU...Many restaurants have reasonable prices and cater to young people and students. Also Panera, ABP, Whole Foods, and Trader Joe are all a block away.

Walking down Broadway and we fell upon this park. It had an amazing food and craft market. Not sure if it is there everyday.

There are lots of places to eat, and quite a few market stalls selling mainly fresh fruit and vegetables. Some of the vendors let you taste their products too.
There were lots of people sitting in the square eating their lunch. Area has a good cosmopolitan feel.
