About Union Square
Union Square is an important historical intersection in New York City, located where Broadway and The Bowery came together in the early 19th century. Union Squares name actually has nothing to do with celebrating either the federal union or the labor unions, but actually finds the thought offensive and considers themselves as representing the union of the two principle thoroughfares of the island, and the confluence of several trolley lines as in the term ?union station.? The eastern side of the square is habited by the Zeckendorf Towers, and the south by one Union Square voted the most ugly building in New York. This building features a kinetic wall sculpture and digital clock which excrete bursts of steam. Union Square is fondly acknowledged for its statue of George Washington, built by Henry Kirke Brown in 1856, it was the first public sculpture in New York since the equestrian statue of George the 3rd in 1770. If your lucky you will catch a few political demonstrations on the square as it is widely used for many political events. And has in the past held the largest gathering of US citizens in the country at one time. Union Square was also the location for the very first Labor Day Parade, which still continues to visit. Union Square is also a public gathering point for mourners over they?re lost ones from the 9-11 twin towers incident.
