    This is a very small park. If you have a dog, there's a small dog park inside!

    Great lunch spot and the farmer's market is amazing. Also a lot of characters for better or worse

    Best farmers market in the city. Make it a weekly routine to pick from your local farmers versus your friendly neighborhood whole foods. Id rather overpay here and talk with the farmer.

    Another necessary green oasis in the concrete jungle that is Manhattan. People are reading, eating, meeting, napping and/or keeping cool in the shade. Open 6am-midnite.

    Love the farmer's market on the weekend. Always really busy so get there early if you want to avoid the lines and crowds.

    Beautiful park but with a lot of annoyances. It can get dirty, and the crowd is rough. Wouldn't want to walk through it late at night.

    It's worth watching people work their asses off to avoid losing a chess match. Avoid "the show" though.

    Union Square is a prime place to grab a quick meal, see your favorite band, find a rare book and take in art for free.

    Where Midtown meets Lower Manhattan. Famous as the park where socialists in the 1930s used to lecture on soapboxes. (Literally.)

    Nice bit of green downtown. Make your purchase at the Greenmarket (or Whole Foods or Trader Joe's) and have a picnic in the park on a nice day.
