“Love this Place”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Union Square is so much fun. They have a coffee place now outside where you can sit around. I love the shopping in this area and the people are so much fun to watch. They had the Chinese New Year parade last Saturday so the bigger shops such as Macy's closed by 5:00 p.m. The parade route went through Union Square and they had bleechers set up for people to sit and watch. It was amazing!
