After a little research I found out that this square celebrated the union of Broadway and Bowery Road. It’s a busy square with shops like DSW and restaurants. On this trip I noticed men playing chess and backgammon. Perhaps this is how the locals pass...More

Nice park here. Good place to sit down and have lunch, and especially people watch. There are so many people coming and going, it is interesting to watch all of the hustle.

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 the city’s best restaurants and shops
set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron
District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
which makes a good picture no matter what angle you
photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant
architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this
neighborhood is part of a historic district that was
