Madison Square Park

40° 44' 31.96500” N -73° 59' 16.79208” W

A nearly 7-acre park full of greenery where you can rest after (or during) a long day of sightseeing. The park was named after the fourth president of the United States, James Madison, and it was opened in 1847.

The park is not just a park though. It is also a place where many public events are organised (including Parktoberfest), pieces of art are displayed and parties are held. Before you visit the park, you might want to check the official website to see which events not to miss.

There is also a free Wi-Fi connection so you can stay online even here. On weekends, the place tends to get crowded (especially when the weather is nice).
