Madison Square Park Tours

star-4
3,059 Reviews
Madison Square Park
Madison Square Park is a bustling, leafy square that's packed with benches and tucked into New York's Flatiron District. Offices, trendy restaurants, and an architectural landmark—the Flatiron Building—surround Madison Square, situated at Broadway at 23rd Street. Stop for a rest in the park on a busy day exploring Manhattan.

The Basics
Enjoy public art, use the Wi-Fi, or let kids explore an award-winning playground while relaxing in Madison Square Park. The park is easy to visit independently, but to get more out of your experience, take a neighborhood walking tour, history tour, or bike tour. Guided private tours are also a top choice, since most offer flexible itineraries and allow you to visit at your leisure.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Several city sightseeing tours visit the park, and typically run from two hours to a full day.
  • Specialized tours—including food tours—are a great way to see the park, learn about the neighborhood, and sample local cuisine.
  • History fans should see the square's Eternal Light Flagstaff, honoring soldiers and sailors from World War I.
  • There's a popular food kiosk in the park; try to arrive at off hours to avoid the lines.

How to Get There
The easiest way to get to Madison Square is via subway. Take the N, Q, R, or W train to 23rd Street (on Broadway), or the 6 train to 23rd Street (on Park Avenue). Or, arrive by city tour; numerous tours pass by the park and offer the opportunity to experience the neighborhood.

When to Get There
Madison Square is a year-round destination, though it's most enjoyable in mild weather, with the sun shining. Plan to arrive in spring, summer, or autumn for New York's most pleasant weather. During the week, there's a lunch rush—so expect crowds around noon. Foodies should check the calendar, since the park also hosts several culinary events yearly.

Shopping in Herald Square
A few blocks up Broadway, find Herald Square—one of New York's premier shopping areas. There you'll find dozens of brand-name stores, including the Macy's flagship location, at 34th Street and Broadway. The store, which opened in 1902, is packed with designer clothes, cosmetics, and jewelry. Take a ride on the fully operational 1930s wooden escalators.
Address: Broadway and Fifth Ave, New York, NY 10010, USA
