America's Most Popular City Parks: Union Square

No. 2 Union Square Park, New York City

Set in the center of one of Manhattan’s major shopping neighborhoods, Union Square packs a lot of draws into its modest nine-acre space. The south-side steps are often crowded with political demonstrators, break-dancers, and skateboarders; the shaded paths are lined with benches where office workers take lunch.

Don’t Miss: The Greenmarket, held every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, where many of the city’s top restaurant chefs shop for locally grown produce.
