Are there any San Francisco natives reading? Just got back from a week long trip and tried to take a quick survey of the local landscape architecture. First up: Union Square….. A piazza. in america.. kinda, but mainly filled with tourists.
although the palm tree in sand at a public park is very cool!
Most of the shops around the square are basic american mall fare, which detract from the space a bit, but the non-U.S. visitors find a lot of interest in them.
