    A wonderful park for a sunny day with plenty of seating and tables. Loved meeting these sweet little guys (the tiny one has 3D-printed legs (wheels) and is famous because of that. Beautiful space.

    When Central Park is too big, Union Square Park too dirty, Bryant Park too formal, Madison Square Park is just right!

    Best Park to visit if you want to relax, but still be steps away from all of the action. Grab a park bench along the 26th street side of the park, and write a poem.

    Usually I just enjoy the park-ness (trees, benches, art) but once a year there's the BBQ Festival, and there's always Shake Shack.

    Home to the original Shake Shack with outdoor seating in the park, views of neighboring Flatiron Building to the south, and Empire State Bldg to the north. If you're here to relax, try the north end.

    Madison Square Park is right next to the Flatiron Building, with plenty of benches and a Shake Shack in the center. It’s a nice place to eat or rest and regroup before continuing life in the city.

    Very nice park to sit down and relax in. There is some nice modern art through out the park and you can see the flat iron building. The flat iron district is a very neat area!

    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!

    Centrally located to everything relevant-- downtown- yet, still a good respite, if you have some kids and need to take a break: music, art, park creative workshops--there's always something going on!

    This is a great place to hang out. The changing artwork in the main lawn is fun to see as well. It's a good place to go with a book and relax for a while, and often gets some light breezes through.
