Since 1653, City Hall Park has been a center of civic activity in New York. Serving as a home for rebels during the Colonial era and housing several important government buildings, this park now provides a tranquil rest amongst the hustle and bustle all around. Major institutions such as New York City Hall, the New York City Department of Education and the infamous Tweed Courthouse are all nestled on this block which extends to Chambers Street. Inside the park itself, you will find monuments, fountains and statues of personalities who played an integral part in the city's history. This otherwise tranquil park comes alive during afternoon with government employees, newlyweds who visit the courthouse nearby and tourists coming here for a short stroll. Fresh food-lovers come to the park to shop at the farmer's market held here from March to December. The market takes place every Tuesday and Friday from 8a-4p.
