as much as i love my hometown of new york it cannot compare to europe when it comes to squares. times square isnt really a square and it is too congested with traffic and tourists. the sidewalks are narrow and pedestrain space is limited.

union square on the other hand has more character. it is less touristy and has a bohemian feel. it also has a very nice outdoor farmers market which is rare for an american city.



europe has the best squares. i cannot even begin to do them justice. here are some of my favorites

the vatican is awe inspiring

Piazza della Signoria is also extremely beautiful

place de la comedie is a beautiful square. it is in one of the nicest french cities.montpellier is one of the most underrated french cities. it is not as famous or popular as paris of nice, but thats waht makes it great.

isnt that amazing?

I prefer the squares in Sheffield to the well known ones in London as at least they are actually good! If I was to promote a square in Leeds I'd go for park square as It has grass and trees and nice buidings around it.
