THis intersection is at a crossroads in manhattan.To the east is Koreatown, a bustling area of Korean restaurant, shops, temples and ethnic curosities, to the west a vast shopping mecca containing Macys and other big shopping malls and further west, Penn Station, the gateway around the country. To The south lies the gift buildings and a newly revived flower market... More

Spent the day in NYC with my three kids...decided to take the subway from Central Park area to Herald square so glad we did. Very nice part of town, Macy's store was busy and exciting. Plenty of things to see especially people watch. I highly recommend eating at the Waffles and Dinges stand across from Macy's. Best money I ever... More

Situated at the intersection of Broadway and Avenue of Americas, the park gives an opportunity to sit back and relax amidst the madness of Manhattan. If you are shopping on broadway and enjoy street food, best way is to grab some fast food, a cup of coffee and sit here and witness the surroundings. Though this idea will only suitable... More

So when we got out that sunny day in september in 2005, the huge Macy's General Store, we found ourselves in the small area bordered with the trees and fence on one side and the massive characteristic New York buildings on the other side. That was just the spot to rest a little, amidst the agitation of the everyday life... More

A little oasis in the middle of the bustle around Macy's near the Empire State Building. We sat here with coffee after our trip up to the top to people watch. It is great spot to do all of that.

This small square is a great place for people watching. It is set out with tables and chairs, where tourists and locals alike spend their lunch break or simply sit to soak up the warmth of the spring sunshine. It was shady and smelt lovely with all the many tubs of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths around it.

Nice stop for a relaxing break. Love this city. So many things to do. Suggest you stay for a few days to see the little gems like the square

Unlike some other reviewers, I found this a delightful quiet area surrounded by the usual mayhem of New York traffic and pedestrian bustle. It is a shaded spot among trees - not exactly common in the heart of Manhattan. I didn't see any litter and the tables and chairs were clean and a welcome respite. Probably not worth seeking out...

Quite simply this is one of the most disgusting places in new york city. There was rubbish everywhere that seemed unattended to for several days and with no action to have it removed. The chairs and tables are in disarray having us wonder what they are there for since they seemed to be unkept. I cant believe this is just... More
