“Interesting Square & Great Market”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

A great square to visit and explore the Farmers Market
and many other eateries around the square.
It can be a busy place on nice days
Get a coffee and observe the passing parade.

“Farmer's Market”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I'm here everyday and it's a different scene each time. Farmer's Market is awesome you can buy your whole meal here. It has gotten a little seedy with all the homeless and drug addicts around. But its not overrun yet.

“The Times Square for Native New Yorkers”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Crowds, buskers, street vendors, cool shops, farmer's market. Union Square is what I think of (as a New Yorker) when I think about Manhattan.More relaxed, less touristy than Times Square, but great place to absorb the culture.
