Grat scene seen from a vintage point. I also like the other scale version.
I wish to point that this is Unions Square Park, slightly further south of the Gramercy ( from 17th to 14th street ). This is where the market is held. A great market by the way, where you can find great food ( chocolate, cheeses, fruits of course) and hand made personnalised t-shirts, hats and so on.
It's easy to mix those two parks up. They are of similar shape, similar size and sits on the street grid just about the same way, boarded by Broadway.

you are right, Alain. O.c. i was in search for that Gramercy and did not recognize what right under my nose.
I really love that kind of markets too. Maybe one with a 'lens in his head' tends to seek opportunities like that. To get that an images of all these humans crowded there.
That time was one of the very last hours before leaving new york. I really love this "alien spaceship like place". You cross the east river to Brookly and the US begins. Same you can have on the other side when visiting the Palisades in NJ.
Btw - in the basement of that building is(was) a Whole Food restaurant. Almost the NYC way of "Biodynamisch" like we call that over here :)
Here's a little trick for NYC: New York City's Greenmarkets
I always watch for markets when I travel. A lens in the head, as you say.

Alain, views of markets like that were my very first sight of what is called New York City. After arriving in Loisaida Av. we rested and then walked up into the "Big City". Just for getting that view at Tomkins Square. I guess images like that defines what is in mind when getting to a strange place at very first time.
That old lady with her trolley in a "Hip City" was unbelievable. One lives here a real live!
btw: here we have that market we could see in 2008.
Market places is where the people gather. This is why I look for them.
My Favorites :
Paris : Marché des Enfants Rouges
Barcelona : Mercat San Jose ( la boqueria )
Wien : Nachmarkt on a saturday
Firenze : San Ambrogio Marcato
Montréal : marché Jean-Talon
New York City : yes, the Union Square Greenmarket and Chelsea Market
But any market, big or small, I enjoy.

wow! That sounds like the "who is who" of the markets. Some of them i also could photograph. That "Naschmarkt" in Vienna. Or a simple food market in Cannes
