Things to see in Union Square

Music lovers can catch a show at Irving Plaza—a large, ballroom-style venue in Union Square with a lot of history. Originally a center for Polish Army veterans, this has been one of the most important concert halls in New York since the late 1970s and has played host to many of the city’s most famous gigs. Another of Union Square’s must-sees is Metronome, a large public art installation erected in 1999. Try to make sense of the numbers across this kinetic wall sculpture which consists of a giant clock made of orange LED lights and a puzzling spiraling image which periodically sends out puffs of steam. For a stimulating night out, fans of the stage can head to the Vineyard Theatre, a pioneering Off-Broadway non-profit company that has garnered rave reviews for its Tony, Pulitzer, and Obie award-winning plays.
