Union Square, the hub of the known universe
By Dave Winer on Thursday, December 02, 2010 at 3:42 PM.

If you're looking for the single place in NYC to position yourself for maximum access to the rest of the city, Union Square is the place for you.  permalink

You can get to the upper east or west sides, the financial district, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, the airports.  permalink

It's only one of two Manhattan streets that has a cross-town subway, the miraculous L train, which is probably responsible for the resurgance of Williamsburg, which is a single stop from Manhattan and just three stops from the magic of Union Square. (The other cross-town street is 42nd.) permalink

On a walk today I happened by an entrance to the subway that tells the story. permalink
