That's in the same city as this:

Cincinnati is a unique gem in the United States. What really bothers me is that most Americans think this place is nothing special and wouldn't think twice before leveling it. Preservation is a constant battle here.

Parliament Square, London, UK

A very boring square, its Westminster Palace that makes it worth the visit.

St Dunstan in the East, The City of London, London, UK

St Dunstan in the East is a church left in ruins after being bombed in WWII. Today it is a popular public space in the city.

For city squares I think London is remarkable.. The city is full of squares:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squares_in_London

One of the distinctive features of the city, and one if its best aspects, is the residential square, examples of which are everywhere.

Anyway I get the impression this thread is leaning towards civic squares. Obivously in London you have the big 5 in the west end - parliament square, trafalgar square, leicester square, covent garden and piccadilly circus.. In The City you have paternoster square, st pauls churchyard, finsbury square, but its much more stifled and dense - noticeable difference from the west end. probably why the west end has overtaken londoners perception as being more like the heart of the city since the victorian era.

I won't bother to repost trafalgar square as the most famous, so i'll post a couple of personal favourites:

soho square




St james's square
