Why locals love it

This bustling park is a popular meeting spot due to its location near shops, restaurants, and intersecting subway lines. Play chess with the locals, people watch on the steps, or scope out the Greenmarket for local produce and other products.

Why you should visit it

In addition to its central location near shops and restaurants, the park is also home to four historical monuments: Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, Marquis de Lafayette, and Mahatma Ghandi. From late November through Christmas Eve, be sure to check out the very popular Union Square Holiday Market.

Special tip

The Greenmarket happens every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday year-round. The park also offers free Wi-Fi!
