Neighborhood Description

Union Square is a center-of-the-action neighborhood, filled with professionals, artists, entertainers, and tourists.

The population today is around 9,785. Itself a huge congregation point, the area is valued for its park and architecture, as well as monuments and artwork including a statue of Gandhi, a statue of George Washington, and the Metronome. Another valued attraction is the neighborhood’s green market that features dozens of local farmers, bakers, brewers, artists, and businesses. The Union Square Holiday Market in November and December also attracts New Yorkers and tourists alike. Finally, Union Square is the location of several wonderful shops, theatres, and restaurants. Some of the many noteworthy dining establishments include The Grey Dog’s Café, Blue Water Grill, Coffee Shop, Republic, and Max Brenner.

The neighborhood’s apartment rentals are often found in large, new construction buildings. A good example would be One Union Square South, which has 33 floors and over 150 apartments. This newly-constructed building includes full-service amenities, such as a doorman, an in-building gym and fitness center, elevators, and a common rooftop. Many apartments also have views of the park.

For those who prefer pre-war buildings—for example, a 100-year-old warehouse or factory converted into an apartment complex—the spaces exist as well, as do classic loft spaces with large windows, excessive light and keyed elevators on side streets like Fifteenth, Sixteenth and Seventeenth Streets, between Union Square West and Fifth Avenue.

Union Square is located south of Flatiron, east of Chelsea, northeast of Greenwich Village, northwest of the East Village, and west of Gramercy. Once a potter’s field, the area was originally developed to compensate for the awkwardness of the acute angle resulting from Broadway’s diagonal nature. By 1815, Union Square (formerly known as Union Place) became a public commons, and by 1845 it had filled with affluent houses. Some of these early houses, though remodeled and restructured, can still be observed today. Among them are 862-888 Broadway, at the corner of Broadway and Seventeenth Street, and The Everett House, on the corner of Seventeenth Street and Fourth Avenue.

Union Square was predominantly residential until after the Civil War when the neighborhood became largely commercial. Union Square was also the home of New York City’s first commercial theatre district, which eventually migrated uptown to be known as “Broadway.” Additionally, Union Square has been and continues to be a center of social and political activism.

Union Square is served by the Fourteenth-Street Union Square Subway Station’s N/Q/R and 4/5/6 Trains as well as the L train. Seven bus lines also serve the neighborhood: the M1, M2, M3, M7, M9 and M14.
