As Broadway bisected Manhattan north and west, a series of squares developed, creating some of the city’s loveliest small parks. Union Square, Madison Square and Gramercy Park form a collar around south Midtown leading to downtown. The Flatiron Building, one of Manhattan’s earliest skyscrapers and much loved by generations of photographers, points north at the tip of Madison Square Park. It was once the end of “Ladies Mile,” the city’s fashionable shopping district along Broadway and Sixth Avenue. This area in Chelsea has been rejuvenated and is once again in vogue, not only for its stores and restaurants, but for the art galleries on its western edge.

New Yorkers get their homegrown produce at the weekly Green Market at Union Square. As the gateway to downtown, Union Square has a history of joining uptown and downtown in spirit and in commerce. The lively square is often the site of demonstrations, markets and festivals that bring New Yorkers together.
