Union Square: Top 10 Date Night Picks
Some might say Union Square is the center of the city—it’s the divider between Downtown and Midtown—but definitely doesn’t suffer from the middle child syndrome. Union Square is an integral part of the eclectic and vibrant energy that draws people to Manhattan. Anchored by its namesake plaza and bustling park where you’ll find farmers' markets and what seems like endless games of chess, fitness classes and live music performers. Take just a few steps in any direction, and you’ll find yourself in the neighboring hoods of Greenwich Village, Gramercy, Flatiron and Chelsea—it's full of leafy streets, filled with an eclectic mix of old brownstones, modern highrise condo buildings, shops, restaurants, bars, and galleries. And this is just the guide to help you navigate it.
