  • It's an acorn... for Raleigh... the city of oaks!! lol It's used to mimic the ball drop in NYC. Bless their hearts!! Hope you make it soon!! 
  • It is a nice place for downtown. Many office buildings. A nice change to have something like this downtown.A nice change of scenery.

  • Usually neat things like sandcastles but stay alert for park residents. They have moved the Acorn away from here ( now near old memorial auditorium)
  • Nice area, right in the middle of downtown Raleigh. The biggest problem I foresee for visitors, is there is a large homeless population in the area, and a active bus terminal across the street. But there are great museums within walkingdistance as well.
  • Nothing much to say. It's one of a handful of squares in downtown Raleigh. There's some nice trees and some art fixtures.
  • Moore square needs a lot of work. The city of Raleigh has spent a lot of time bring people and businesses to that part of town and they haven't invested in reclaiming the space to make it saved or everyone. There's a ton of trash and beer bottles and broken glass as well as the fact that the grass is destroyed from setting up too many festival stages and booths. Panhandlers constnatly asl you for money or yell at you, and it's generally not a pleasant place. No one spends time there if they don't have to.
  • This place gives me the creeps. Drunks always hanging around bumming money or cigarettes. I'll be glad when they finish with the renovation, maybe this place will be better & much nicer.
