Lots of activity. Great place to sit and enjoy lunch on the go or a cup of coffee. Lots of restaurants and shops around.

There are a lot of parks and areas in Manhattan that are more interesting. Too much craziness going on here except for the holiday market which is worth visiting.

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set

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... More
