Open year-round, the Union Square Greenmarket attracts locals and tourists alike searching for unique meats or produce to purchase that can only be found here. On 14th Street, shoppers frequent big-name brand stores such as Forever21, Nordstrom Rack, and DSW. After a long day, you’ll find weary shoppers resting their legs at Ribalta, an old school pizza place, or the more upscale Gotham Bar and Grill. One block up, the 14th Street Union Square station provides easy access to most of Manhattan.
You’ll be sitting in between a designer eyeglass retailer and a real estate office. Forbidden Planet is directly across the street, the popular comic book store. On the corner is the long-standing Strand Bookstore and up the street is Max Brenner Chocolate Bar, which is trendy with tourists.
