If you are a Law & Order fan, it is worth a visit to see the famous courthouse. There is also a beautiful sculpture in the middle of Foley Square titled The Triumph Of The Human Spirit. Highly recommend if you are nearby!

"Triumph of the Human Spirit" by Lorenzo Pace is neat. It was also nice seeing the pretty architecture of the government buildings.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
