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. The square is also home to the first Greenmarket in New York City, and the joyful Union Square Holiday Market. 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.
