Check-ins on Foursquare identify the country’s hottest urban green spaces.

No. 5 Madison Square Park, New York City

6 of 21

This 6.8-acre park, still looking fresh after a renovation in 2001, is one of the quieter of NYC’s parks (except in summer, when it often hosts outdoor music and food festivals). It’s surrounded by some notable architecture: the Flatiron Building, Met Life Tower, and Woolworth Building.

Don’t Miss: The Shake Shack, a permanent stand serving up hamburgers, hot dogs, and its signature frozen custard milkshakes. You’ll know it by the long (but quickly moving) line of people waiting to order.
