My boyfriend and I were staying at a hotel in the nearby vicinity and decided to check Pershing Square out. There’s not a crazy amount of things to do in the square or a lot of greenery, but I think it’s worth a quick look...More
Not a lot here to see, not my idea of a public space. A few statues, a bit of greenery and some benches in the shade inhabited by some undesirable characters I’m afraid. Near to a metro stop and close the the Central library which...More
