Named after the “union” of Broadway and Fourth Avenue, Union Square is where NYU and The New School’s young talent intersects with the tech savvy of Silicon Alley. No wonder so many startups in particular seek its confines for a headquarters.
On its own, Union Square Park acts as a little playground for busy professionals and buskers alike on a warm summer day or cool autumn evening. Its best-known feature? The mysterious Metronome on the art wall at 1 Union Square South, blithely counting down the hours til’ midnight.
Union Square is also a favorite of foodies shopping for fresh ingredients. Union Square Greenmarket, the Union Square Holiday Market, and a Trader Joe’s supplies many a dinner table in New York City.
Union Square offices are also sure to benefit from the accessibility to public transit at Union Square station and its proximity to commercial districts like Flatiron and Chelsea.
Office space for rent costs on average $68/sqft.
