This public space was a highly desirable address when it opened in 1847, and is now a verdant oasis. It hosts art installations, food festivals and a popular series of summer concerts. The destination is also home to Shake Shack, a summer favorite (as evidenced by the shockingly long lines) for burgers, fries and, of course, shakes.

Madison Park is a green reprieve that sits in a central location across from the Flatiron building. It's surrounded by delicious eateries like Eataly, Beecher's Handmade Cheese and occasionally a pop-up food market. Madison Square Park usually features some art installation (or a few), and it's home to Shake Shack, which always has a huge line. There's grass to sit on, dog runs, plenty of park benches, and a beautiful stone circle where street performers will set up, including a guy who drags in an entire piano to play for the masses. Madison Square is great way to take a break after walking around the city the whole day.
