This park was originally built in 1923 to highlight the Biltmore Hotel. Obviously, the playground and modern features have been added, but over the more recent years, it's been a little neglected and has fallen prey to the homeless. There was a security guard on...More

Pershing Square is an interesting place to visit and watch all of the folks both employed and otherwise. It used to have lots of grass but now it is mostly concrete with a few plantings but it occupies a special place in front of the...More

Pershing Square has nothing special. It has an average park and the only useful thing is that it has a metro station.

Pershing square is just a nice park that is in the middle of downtown and situated next to a couple places such as Grand Central Market or other restaurants. It is pretty average.

Small park area in the middle of downtown but mainly occupied by the homeless when we walked through. I wouldn't go out of my way to see the place.

Nothing to see here but homeless people and ugly concrete. It's not really even an attraction. Felt unsafe and held my bag closer to me until I cleared this spot.

Nice park area with a fantastic background photo opt. All of the dirtbags and homeless people certainly do bring the place down. It is in a busy location with the Grand Central Marketplace near by for all of it's wonderful food and beverage options.

Not sure why this gets good reviews. It's an alright looking urban square surrounded by multiple people asking for money and with a slightly unsafe vibe. All the security on the doors of surrounding businesses are there for a reason - I've never seen security...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

It is in the middle in commercial area of the city. It is just another city square in a city. If you have time, it is worth stopping by to see and eat around there. I did not plan to go there myself but was there because of... More
