The New York region
Union Square is the gateway to downtown. It's a stone's throw from the East Village, Gramercy, the West Village, and the meatpacking district. It's also about as close as this city gets to a European piazza: There's a Greenmarket, peddling artisans, a dog run, and street performers all in one hub. And the Flatiron district boasts some of New York's most celebrated dining options. In 1976, the Council on the Environment of New York City (now GrowNYC) established the Greenmarket program, which provided regional small farmers with opportunities to sell their fruits, vegetables and other products at open-air markets in the city. The best-known of these is the Union Square Greenmarket, held Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between 8 AM and 6 PM year round. 250,000 customers a week purchase 1,000 varieties of fruits and vegetables at the market, and the variety of produce available is much broader than what is found in a conventional supermarket.
Union Square is also known for the Union Square Holiday Market, which is held November 23 through December 24. Temporary booths are filled with over 100 craftsmen, who sell items ranging from candles and perfume to knitted scarves and high-end jewelry. Union Square is a popular meeting place, given its central location in Manhattan and its many subway lines. There are many bars and restaurants on the periphery of the square, and the surrounding streets have some of the city's most renowned (and expensive) restaurants. S. Klein's department store promoted itself in the middle 20th century as an "On the Square" alternative to higher prices uptown, and late in the century several big-box chain stores established a presence, including Barnes & Noble, Babies "R" Us and Staples. In addition, the W Union Square Hotel opened at the park's northeast corner, in the landmark building that formerly housed the Guardian Life Insurance Company of America.
This public park is the gateway to downtown—a stone's throw from the East Village, Gramercy, SoHo and Greenwich Village—and as close as New York gets to a European piazza. At almost any hour you can expect a good crowd. Hackey-sackers, skateboarders and protestors dominate the steps on the south end while dog-walkers and dog-watchers gravitate towards the narrow dog run on the west side of this landmark space. Kids play in the park's three playgrounds, adults shop the fantastic green market, and students from the New York Film Academy (on the park's northeast corner) learn how to focus.
Union Square Park has long been and still remains a location for political activists, ever since the first Labor Day Parade took place here in 1882. The park also hosts a series of free music and dance performances in the summer, plus a crafts fair in the winter. Restaurants along its perimeter, as well as the bars, bookstores and shops, have further established Union Square as an extremely popular destination. And thanks to good planning by the park's designers, there's room for everyone.
New York City
What to Do in The East Village And Gramercy.
The young and trendy flock to the East Village, and always have (beatniks in the fifties, hippies in the sixties, and punks in the seventies and eighties). The cutting-edge crowd has formed an interesting and exciting array of alternative clubs, experimental music and theatre, fashion stores, and tattoo parlors. In recent years, CBGB's has been replaced by a John Varvatos store and luxury apartment buildings have sprung up all over the neighborhood, but much of the spirit remains. Perhaps best known for the famous locked park for which only residents and hotel guests have keys, the Gramercy Park area also more or less extends to Union Square Park, the famous Flatiron Building, and the birthplace of Theodore Roosevelt.
What seems more like an open-air artistic bazaar than a street lined with apartments, St. Marks Place is a sort of "Santa Monica" of the east coast with t-shirt shops, CD stores, sidewalk shopping, and bars, though it has become more gentrified in recent years. But the real action in this area happens after the sun goes down: Non-descript doors hide some of the hippest places in the city; the sound of James Brown comes out of one bar while Celtic chanting comes from another. The Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership also sponsors free 90-minute walking tours of the historic district, in which you're sure to see some of the city's most notable landmarks, including the New York Life Insurance building, the MetLife tower, the Appellate Courthouse and of course the Flatiron Building. Explore the world's first skyscraper, the triangle-shaped, eighteen-story Flatiron Building that dates back to 1902. It is only six feet wide at the apex of the triangle! Or visit the Greenmarket at Union Square, a park first landscaped in 1832, where the Department of Parks kept its offices until the 1870s.
Two of Off-Broadway's longest-running hits, Stomp and Blue Man Group, are also in the neighborhood, and Tango House, a nightly tango musical with outstanding professional musicians and dancers direct from Buenos Aires, is scheduled to open in 2013. Another highlight of the area is Tompkins Square Park, home to annual events like the Howl Festival and the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival and the Tompkins Square Dog Run.Head on to the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site at 28 East 20th Street, between Broadway and Park Avenue South. The house was reconstructed in 1923 and has interesting period rooms and a small museum dedicated to the nation's 25th president. The National Arts Club, which hosts a number of exciting events including art unveilings, award dinners, film screenings, lectures and dances is also in the neighborhood.
The south side of East Sixth Street between First & Second Aves., Little Bombay, features Indian eateries. Established in 1854, McSorley's Old Ale House is the city's oldest continuously operated saloon, and seems to have changed very little in the last 150+ years. In terms of dining and nightlife, there are also plenty of options. For unique, inventive American cuisine try Gramercy Tavern. Do try the roasted sweetbreads, the chilled lobster and the seared foie gras appetizers—the latter two do have a supplemental charge that is well worth the price. There's also the Strip House, which serves some of the finest steaks in New York. And if you find yourself getting thirsty stop for a drink at the legendary Pete's Tavern the place that writer O. Henry made famous. Open since 1864, its New York's oldest surviving saloon. It even operated during Prohibition disguised as a flower shop. Later on, if you're looking to liven up your night catch a concert at Irving Plaza, a midsize venue that lots of big indie rock bands play.
East Village restaurants include Buenos Aires and Malbec Wine Bar and Restaurant. In addition to the renowned Gramercy Park Hotel, the neighborhood is also surrounded by various other illustrious hotels. There's the über-swanky Hotel Giraffe as well as the luxurious W New York Union Square. Designed in the Beaux-Arts style it is a magnificent granite and limestone structure with all the exquisite details inherent in traditional European architecture. For the more budget conscious traveler there's always the Chelsea Inn and Hotel 17.
Right nearby is the self-proclaimed, original Silicon Alley that gets its name from the numerous internet related companies in the area. The alley snakes down Broadway, although by now nearly any part of Manhattan below Gramercy Park qualifies as Silicon Alley. Finally, take a peek at Gramercy Park itself, its well-manicured green space and beautiful flower beds. Maybe someone will invite you in; ask nicely—you never know!
