    So close to everything! Subway, shopping (Macy's and so much more), Koreatown, etc. They have a great outdoors food court during the summer worth checking out.

    Nice area just way to many people. It's a tourist trap.

    It's just way too crowded. It's the WORST if you're actually trying to do any shopping.

    Busy. Lots to look at. Much better since they shut down the traffic and made it a pedestrian walkway.

    The monument clock moves at the hour. And the owls eyes light up at night.

    Closing Bradway over here really took away this place's charm.

    Area with TONS of tourists, but probably because of the awesome area for shopping.

    Outdoor bistro tables, by-the-hour bike rental stations, and gourmet coffee stands make people-watching the sport of choice at this multi-block streetfront gathering spot.
