"Radical History, Chic Present"
Unlike many other squares of its kind in the U.S., this Union Square does not take it name for the labor movement or the integration of the Federal states, it was named for the unification of two major streets in 1815. The square underwent several refurbishments and renovations throughout the 19th Century, with the addition of the fountain in 1842 and Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmstead (landscape architects of Central Park fame) replanted the park in 1872. It is also known as a place for rallies, demonstrations and other events, with too many to count since its inception. Moreover, Union Square hosts street chess, open-air markets and there are plenty of retail stores around the entire area which makes it a perfect place to shop.
