Union Square

Neighborhood Image

 

Union Square is a vibrant, diverse residential and commercial community known throughout the City and beyond for its incomparable qualities. With many of the most celebrated restaurants, theaters and cultural venues, New Yorkers flock to the area for fine dining and cutting-edge entertainment.
 
The district's universities, hospitals and hundreds of distinctive retailers make it a preferred destination. Union Square Park serves as an urban oasis providing the community with a beautiful public space; tens of thousands shop at the Greenmarket on the north plaza each week; and the Holiday Market is a favorite seasonal attraction.
 
USP's free events and programs, including weekly walking tours, the Summer in the Square performance series, and wireless access in the park, bring neighbors, employees and visitors together to share in a real New York experience.
