  • Went at night. Large crowd. Beautiful. Felt safe
  • Great place to just hang out, talk to people, listen to good music live, have a cup of coffee from Friend's, grab a bite or an ice cream just around the corner. On christmas they always have something going on, on the weekends. Mostly locals hang out here, but you will have a glance of what's the puerto rican culture.
  • Beautiful and historical place. Good for a day walk.
  • I've been from the area my whole life and they always keep it clean and pretty, can't really help some vagabonds asking for money but it's a pretty calm area. The holidays have been getting better each years, this time bringing a carousel.
  • good place to hang out with friends and family day and night
