Sometimes overlooked by tourists, the architecture surrounding Madison Square Park is gorgeous. This area is booming. A good place to check out new restaurants / bars.

A great park to stroll and grab your lunch during the day, but even better at night! Located in the hip Flatiron district, across the street from Eataly.

A lovely park located by Madison Avenue, Madison Square Park is spacious enough for a short walk and for bench sitting to gaze at the lovely fountain.Recommended for:Local Culture

Go for a walk, relax on a park bench, play with your children, do some people watching, or enjoy a meal from the Shake Shack kiosk. This is a pretty little park on Manhattan's east side. Store managers/buyers who are in town on business will appreciate the park's proximity to some of the wholesale showrooms on Madison.Recommended for:Family Travelers

I work a block and a half away from this park and it's a perfect lunchtime spot with several spots to lay your blanket and enjoy the sun! There's a Shake Shack inside as well (be prepared to wait) and a dog park as well. Add in the periodic art installations and music concerts and you have a really great spring/summer/fall spot!

The size, location and frequently changing art and sculptures make this one of the cities best parks. It can get crowded, but no where near as much as central park and the smaller size make a great place to read, write or relax with friends.

On display in Madison Square Park now is Leo Villareal’s BUCKYBALL. According to madisonsquarepark.org, Villareal’s creation, largely inspired by the work of Buckminster Fuller’s spherical fullerene, applies concepts of geometry and mathematical relationships within a towering 30-foot tall, illuminated sculpture.
BUCKYBALL is surrounded by zero-gravity reclining wooden couches for viewers to enjoy the spectacular lightshow from below. This site-specific work will remain on view through February 1, 2013.
In the background is the Metropolitan Life Insurance Tower erected in 1909 as the world’s tallest building for 3 years.
