Our top Union Square Moving Tips

Beyond the park, you’ll find the bounds of the neighborhood stretching from 5th Avenue to Irving Place west to east. North to south, it spans from East 18th Street to East 14th Street. It’s surrounded by other great neighborhoods, including Gramercy, East Village, Greenwich Village, and the Flatiron District.

This neighborhood may be nestled into the downtown Manhattan scene, but it’s no shrinking violet. Here’s a few details and tips to get you better acquainted with your new NYC home:

  • Commuting. On foot, on wheels, or on the tracks, you’ll have your pick of getting around in Union Square. When it comes to traveling by the Metropolitan Transit Authority’s subway system, this part of Manhattan is a serious transit hub. You’ll find several lines will lead to the neighborhood at the 14th Street- Union Square station, including the 4,5,6, N W, Q, and R subway trains. If you’d rather locomote solo, this part of Manhattan is the 4th most walkable neighborhood in the city (with a score of 100 by walkscore.com). Biking around Union Square gets a score of 92. So, if you’ve got room to store your 2-wheeler, you’re in for a breezy ride. With these types of options, you may part ways with your personal vehicle all together! Parking is a whole ‘nother ball game in NYC.
  • Cost of housing. Though this part of the city is pretty commercial, there are abodes available for purchase or rental. However, being so close to the plaza and in the downtown area will cost you. For instance, the most recent median listing price for a home in Union Square was at $1.3 million. If you’re looking at rentals, your square footage will be pricey. The average studio apartment in the neighborhood will come in just under 500 square feet and run you about $2,923 per month. If you’re in need of a bedroom — or several bedrooms — you’ll find rents between $4,938 and $8,178 per month. It may come as no surprise, but included in the cost is proximity to a really exciting and desirable part of the city.
  • Arts and culture. In and around Union Square is a happening place. Folks from all over the city, including tourists, regularly make their way to the huge year-round Greenmarket located on the north and west sides of the park to find locally sourced edible goods and produce. As the temperatures turn colder towards the end of the year, Union Square is also home to the Winter Holiday Market featuring over 100 vendors who brave the weather to sell their crafts, food, and art. Another year-round fixture is the Metronome on the south side of the park. This public work of art was installed in 1999. It depicts in its digital digits an abstraction of time. Some of them tell the current time while others display the remaining time in the day. The digit right in the middle moves too fast for the eye to see. It’s a real sight to see. Speaking of time, if you’re looking for a rocking good one, head on over to Irving Plaza. With capacity for just about 1,000 fellow concert goers, this venue is frequented by mid-level and big-name acts that come through the city. It’s been around since the 1970’s, so you know those walls have stories to tell — including that the Ramones once graced the place with their presence.
  • Dining park side. You’ll be able to get to some of the best places to eat in the country from this neighborhood. But, don’t pass up the opportunity to eat good in your own neighborhood. For instance, whether you’re carbo-loading or just craving something with a good crust, Breads Bakery will be a go-to spot for your baked goods. For a classic and seasonal Italian menu, put down a few bucks and make a reservation at Union Square Café, for the Rigatoni Alla Norma or the Country Pork Chop. Another hot spot for a special sit-down occasion that has Japanese fare on offer nearby is Shuko. Opting for takeout instead? Try Chard’s Southeast Asian flavors, like their Roti John, a seasoned curry in an open-faced omelet sandwich. Or maybe you’d prefer to order family-style, in which case Laut has a mix of Thai, Malaysian, and Singaporean dishes that are both delicious and affordable. And that’s just a taste of what this part of NYC is cooking up for you.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
