Union Square & Flatiron Building – NYC
Another day of walking around in New York City, Naina & I found ourselves crossing the Flatiron Building and Union Square. At this point we were living in the farthest corner of New York – Canarsie (many people haven’t even heard of it) but it was quite an experience. We were meeting up with a friend who took us to some well known joints like Eataly, Max Brenner, etc. You will find all that in this blog post. Union Square is a heavily populated and very popular area in Manhattan, especially for tourists. It also has a statue of Mahatma Gandhi in it which was erected in 1986. We found a group of ‘Hare Krishnas’ (read= wannabe Hindus, whatever that may be) chanting Hindi songs, probably high. Union Square is also the area near where New York’s very first medical marijuana dispensary has recently opened up. The Flatiron Building which was originally called the Fuller Building was completed in 1902 and is a triangular, 22 storey, steel-framed iconic building in NYC.
Here are pics I clicked while walking around the areas.
Across the road is Eataly. It’s huge and it’s crowded and it’s amazing!
