The Union Square Greenmarket began with just a few farmers in 1976 and has grown exponentially. In peak season 140 regional farmers, fishers, and bakers sell their products to New Yorkers on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays. From just-picked fresh fruits and vegetables, to heritage meats and award-winning farmstead cheeses, artisan breads, jams, pickles, an array of cut flowers and plants, wine, ciders, maple syrup and much more.

🌟 Fotografiska New York

Fotografiska New York is the NYC location of the renowned Stockholm destination for the world’s best photography.

🌟 Lexington Candy Shop

Founded in 1925, Lexington Candy Shop is one of New York City’s only reminders of the era when soda fountains and luncheonettes were fixtures in every neighborhood throughout New York. Continuously owned and operated through three generations of family and partners, walking into the restaurant has been compared to walking into a time warp.

🌟 Carl Schurz Park

This picturesque park, partially hidden along the East River, is one of the city’s best-concealed secrets. A stroll along the promenade provides beautiful views of the river, the Roosevelt Island Lighthouse, the Triborough Bridge, Randall’s and Wards islands, and, of course, Gracie Mansion, the 18th century mansion that serves as the Mayor’s official residence. Carl Schurz Park is one of the city’s most dog-friendly–two dog runs offer plenty of space for pups to run around and mingle.

🌟 UES.

This little ice cream shop is hiding a big secret, it doubles as a dimly lit speakeasy if you can find the hidden entrance. When you enter UES, just ask the person behind the ice cream bar “I would like to visit the storage room”. This is the secret password to get in!

🌟 Soundview Park

Called the “Gateway to the Bronx River,” Soundview Park is situated where the Bronx River opens into the East River. When the City of New York acquired the original 93 acres of land for this park in 1937, the entire area was composed of marshland. Today, the 205-acre park offers six grass baseball fields, a cricket pitch, a running track, a soccer field, six basketball courts, six handball courts, a running track with synthetic turf field, a dog run, walking/biking paths and a performance lawn.
