“What's the point?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Originally, in the 70's the idea was to bulldoze an entire block to form a city square. Thank god it didn't happen. Not sure what was demolished to make way for this space but what a waste! Unlike a real city square in European cities you don't walk through it to get anywhere. Just a cold empty piece of hard surface.
