Madison Square Park, a seven-acre urban oasis, is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Flatiron District. The Madison Square Park Conservancy raises the funds that support lush and brilliant horticulture, park maintenance, park security and a variety of free cultural programs.
From inside the park, you can get a great angle on the surrounding buildings for a Panoramic Stitch. Outside the park on the west side, looking south, is a fantastic shot of the Flatiron Building.
Enjoy world-class outdoor art in this historic park right in the heart of Manhattan.
Today, I was here to unveil "Red, Yellow and Blue" by NYC-based artist Orly Genger. The exhibit runs through September 8, 2013.
Go to Madison Square Park and watch the dogs play in the dog park!
instead of working @ a coffee shop indoors, this has reliable free wireless AND you get to sit on a lawn, watch the dogs in the dog park, and did i mention Shake Shack??
Look for the bronze man statues. Then look up at the skyline for the same statues on the roof lines of surrounding buildings There are 3 around the park, 10 on the ground, and 31 all together.
Besides the Shake Shack and the lines of people, check out the dog run, the views of the Flatiron, the featured art, the fountain and the Calexico Cart.
This is a beautiful park no doubt, but there's a reason it's crowded - Shake Shack. Endure the wait for one of the city's best burgers and chow down in the park for a fun lunch.
Find shake shack, grab a burger and check in there
just sit and take in 360 degrees of amazing architecture: Flatiron, Met Life, NY Life, One Madison Park...
Picnic in Madison Square Park. It’s one of our favorites!
You'll find me walking around brainstorming, coming up with ideas. Best place to be inspired.
A glorious park that is just the right size for the city, ringed by (mostly) great architecture that interacts pleasingly with the park's views of nature. A mini-Centra Park, if you will.
This is one of the best areas to express bus watch for New York bus fans. At Rush Hour you will not be able to blink! Hope your camera batteries are charged!
Look up! Antony Gormley's amazing sculptures are all around on the rooftops. Incredible!
Isn't it obvious? Shake Shack baby!
Watch out for the gangsta squirrels
Look up! Event Horizon is a public art show in Flatiron. Check out the human statue figures on top of numerous buildings circling the park.
Lay down here on a sunny day and look up to the top of every building surrounding the park, there's a very peculiar art exhibition going on up there...
Here for Madison Square Eats? Check out the offerings of Pig & Khao and The Cannibal, two restaurants where you can use Cover to pay and dine without waiting for the check.
Watch the squirrels dumpster dive for things that aren't even edible... And then watch them try to figure out what to do with them.
Hand feed squirrels!
For one weekend in June it’s home to the Big Apple BBQ, featuring pit masters from all over the country grilling around the park.
Animal lovers make sure to check out the dog run! It’s the perfect place to get lots of photographs of cute pups!
Did you know that the arm & torch of the Statue of Liberty was displayed here in this park in the late 1800s before the statue was unveiled in the harbor in 1886? It was used as an observation deck!
One of the best places for a quick rest in Midtown. The park features large lawns, lots of art work, Shake Shack, and squirrels that come right up to you and eat from your hand. Catch that on camera!
amazing park to go for during your lunch break or dinner- Shake Shack in the park is a must do on a bucket list.
Closest thing to tranquility in this hood
Twice around is almost a mile
Check out the Shake Shack website for the live feed of the park to get an idea of the wait!
Chillout and enjoy the view, dude.
The New York Life Building across the park wasdesigned in 1926 by Cass Gilbert, who also designed the landmark Woolworth Building.

This park always have something going on, and lovely hungry squirrels which i love! Very relaxing and different in the City Jungle. Great place to stroll with a coffee from one of the nearby cafes.
Au pied du Flatiron Building, le Madison Square Park est un parc très agréable. Vous pouvez profiter des bancs pour vous détendre et prendre un burger au Shake Shack du parc.
Ótima área de lazer e descanso para fim de tarde, em especial abertura de verão no final de Junho. A única barraca de hot-dog tem fila enorme porque a comida é muito boa e os turistas adoram.
