Foursquare Tips

  • "here's a statue of moses cleaveland, he's the guy that invented cleveland"
  • Although The Avengers wont hit theaters until 2012, Public Square has been a shooting location for the movie starring Chris Evans (Captain America) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow).
  • Here one can see a statue of Moses Cleaveland. Note the extra "a" between "e" & "v". The city's name was actually spelled that way fo quite some time.
  • Where parts of A Christmas Story was filmed. Higbees department store.
  • Welcome to Public Square! The first electric street light in America stood here. Look for the iron-wrought ivy leading up to a street light, along the side of The Key Center building.
  • The Winterfest fireworks display was great.
  • 11am weekdays 100's of students roam public square with nowhere to be. The swat and anti-gang armored vehicles stand by with water cannons once the riots start.
  • Even after working downtown for 30 years, I will never tire of this view. Just lovely.
  • The Christmas light are awesome.
  • This is now a usable space. Lots of seating, a water feature, traffic is limited to buses only on Superior, and a cafe is coming soon.
  • Filling the role of a Stutgart square, Public Square was used in Avengers Assemble (2012) for the scene where all-but-one of a crowd kneels before Loki before Cpt America and Iron Man turn up.
  • Two words: look. up.
  • The Christmas lights are beautiful!
  • The heart of Cleveland. It's a beautiful place and was updated recently.
  • Everything's changed it's pretty but I hate the way streets changed.
  • I got a very good narrative on the 23rd OVI from the gentleman historian at the soldier's memorial
  • I just don't get it. After the transformation takes place, who is going to pay to park just to get some green space and a place to sit? Make sense to you?
  • The renovation of the square will kill it. Any city across America that has ever done that to their downtown square has regretted it. Leave the square as is.
  • Summer work lunch spot
  • It is the center of northeast Ohio, and that means it's always crowded, loud and so much fun to people watch. I can't get enough and often come to just sit on a bench.
