Top 20 Union Square & Flatiron, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Union Square and its surrounding area is a rare combination of affluence and convenience, with a handful of subway stops all converging in one place as well as upscale restaurants. It's not just a transit hub though, and the square is a fun place to hang out in the summer months and watch the world go by - you're almost always sure to find dog lovers and chess players, activists speaking their minds, and break-dancers and skateboarders showing off to anyone and everyone. Just a short walk away is another fun square, Madison Square Park where you can eat delicious burgers under festoon lighting at the first-ever branch of Shake Shack, as well as getting a glimpse of the iconic Flatiron building. One thing to know – New York is a very busy city (it’s not called “the city that never sleeps” for nothing). As part of an authentic New York experience, you can expect a fair amount of noise and construction coming from the streets, whether it be roadwork, scaffolding, or honking yellow taxis.
