This is a meeting place of the locals, very quiet and relaxing. It is small, but big enough to people watch and just take a little break. This plaza honors the Italian culture.

This is just a statue surrounded by what is a poor excuse for a plaza. I agree that it is just a place to make bus or subte (subway) connection. It's not a place worth visiting.
