This garden square located at 14th Street and Broadway was one of New York City's first uptown business districts.
By the 1960's it was a depressed part of town, and used to be the hangout spot for lots of junkies.
Since then its been revived and not is home to the city's best known open air produce market, the Greenmarket. This market operates every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday mornings year round.
During my visit to Union Square I was fortunate enough to experience a brief snowfall, which was absolutel gorgeous, you will see in some of my pictures the snow falling, it was really nice!
