One of LA's most quintessential public spaces, the Spanish-inspired plaza—which is interrupted by a series of large geometric structures painted in bright hues of pink, purple, red and yellow—is a popular gathering space for locals, featuring wide pathways lined with trees, a circular fountain, and benches galore. Surrounding the park are a series of iconic 1920s- and 1930s-built edifices like the Subway Terminal Building and the Biltmore Hotel.

Pershing Square has so much potential seems to be trying really hard to make something of itself. From concerts to vendors and food trucks and art installations like Liquid Shard, this place is different each time I go to it. It's a nice little oasis to walk through on your lunch hour but it does still have a long way to go.

The skyline views are pretty and the park is centrally-located, but that's about all Pershing Square has going for it. Concrete and parking garages just don't make for a very friendly park. Some of the programming here is alright, but otherwise don't go out of your way to come here—at least not until it's eventually redesigned.
