Madison Square Park

Today marks the start of the 2014 US Open, which continues through September 8th.

Mad Sq Eats, the pop-up food festival next to Madison Square Park, makes lunchtime in the Flatiron District more exciting.

The newest art installation to hit Madison Square Park, This Land Is Your Land by Iván Navarro (on view thru Apr. 13), reminds us that the U.S. is a nation of immigrants.

Guiseppe Penone's nature-based sculptures are dominating Madison Square Park.

For office worker bees, it’s so easy to get bored with the available options for lunch (and, unfortunately, dinner on the occasional late nights).

Last night, I went to an event at SD26—a contemporary Italian restaurant right across the street from Madison Square Park. I had walked by the eatery several times in the past, but once I entered the space, I was very surprised by its size.

The cherry blossom trees were in full bloom in Madison Square Park last Wednesday, and so, for that matter, was Mayor Bloomberg. The occasion was a colorful one: The mayor made his appearance (and a few corny jokes about the nice weather) for the unveiling of Brooklyn-based artist Orly Genger's Red, Yellow and Blue, a large-scale art installation that has transformed the Flatiron public space into her very own fantasy canvas (on view thru Sept. 8).

May is a great month in the Flatiron District. Not only are flowers in bloom throughout Madison Square Park, but the outdoor food market Mad. Sq. Eats comes to Worth Square—the pedestrian plaza just west of the park.

One of the best things about working in New York City is always being in relatively close proximity to a famed restaurant. Luckily, my office is right down the street from one of the city’s most popular fried chicken joints, Hill Country Chicken—an offshoot of the nearby barbecue restaurant, Hill Country.
