I know that there are tons of tpf guys and gals from New York. A friend and I are planning a trip for this weekend. We are both in our early 20s and looking forward to a weekend of shopping, partying, and catching up. We are thinking of subletting an apartment for the weekend. One of the places on our list of possibilities is near Union Square. I know nothing about the area. What is it like? How is the shopping? Are there many restaurants and bars nearby? TIA!!
