Passion of the game

New York City’s trendiest game with no doubt is chess. At Union Square where chess is played for fun and money, the area is located just outside the subway entrance (near the northeast corner of 14th St. and Union Square West) mirrors the fast pace of its environment. Dozens of chess players sit on crates and use makeshift tables. They lure passersby with offers to try to beat them for $5 to $10 per game.
