Parks and Recreation

Regardless of the time of year, green spaces beckon people to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine, whether it’s for a little yoga, a picnic, or a cup of coffee.

St. Vartan Park

This simple no-frills public park offers a running track, basketball courts, and play features for young children. It’s a neighborhood institution for locals, but we’re sure they won’t mind if you stop by for some outdoor activities.

Madison Square Park

Sitting smack in the middle of several busy streets, this park offers an oasis for shoppers, office workers, and tourists alike. Opened in 1847, the park has now become a well-known destination for ambitious, rotating art installations and sculptures, several food and drink festivals, and even a summer concert series. If you’re stopping by, don’t forget to visit Shake Shack, New York’s premiere homegrown fast-casual burger chain.

Central Park

Lush meadows. Enchanting footbridges. Tranquil ponds. Cast-iron lamps. Picturesque from nearly any angle, New York City’s most iconic urban sanctuary is a must-visit for jogging, picnics, or a simple leisurely stroll. Though its ambience is always magical, Central Park imparts an especially mesmerizing experience as the seasons change.

Union Square Park 

Named simply for being the convergence, or union, of Broadway and Fourth Avenue, the tree-lined Union Square Park provides a natural gathering place for folks coming north from the East and West Village, or south from Gramercy and the Flatiron District. On weekends during warmer months, find a bustling Greenmarket hawking vegetables, fruits, and other edible goods. Come winter, there’s an adorable festive holiday market with gifts, hot cocoa, and Christmas lights aplenty. In the summer, there is a concert series for kids.

14th St to 17th St between Union Square W and Park Ave S, New York, NY 10003
Distance from hotel: 1.5 miles

Herald Square 

Once home to the now-defunct New York Herald newspaper, from which it derives its name, this crossroads area offers food, drink, and respite from the dizzying avenues of Midtown shopping nearby, including the sprawling, 1,250,000-square-foot Macy’s flagship store. If you’re in town during Thanksgiving, you’ll want to visit Herald Square for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
