  • The acorn is no longer in Moore Square... Moore Square looks like a dump... Nothing worth seeing here... Go a few blocks down the street to Nash Square instead.  more »

  • I'm fond of Moore Square. I have lived in Raleigh all of my life and this is a rare preservation of the town's character. A popular meeting place for Marches and a lot of other events. I love too see the acorn.
  • It would be a lot nicer to be at, but there are a lot of homeless people. Nothing wrong with most of them but some can be drunk or high and can be pretty frightening. I'm there everyday and there are a lot of nice people, but there are some not so nice people.
  • Its part of Raleigh's history. Lots of the old building faces still seen with a few long time businesses still there. Ice park if they can keep the bums out. The area has seen major facelifts in the past 10 years. Good and upcoming new developments. Hopefully can push eastward .
  • Would be a great park if cleaned and help homless people into a better living conditions.
  • I love Moore Square- one of Raleigh's original 5 green parks and only 1 of two left. I'm a little sad that the Acorn has been moved from the square, but in its current location (Duke Progress Energy Center for Performing Arts) it is front and center on the corner. Great restaurants surrounding the square.
