An Indoor Square

I showed you a fellow sleeping by a fountain a couple of weeks ago and if you look carefully that is him on the left side of the fountain. I thought I would give you a bit of context and show the whole area. This is Sam Pollock Square, located in Brookfield Place which is also the site of the Hockey Hall of Fame which I showed a while back - Sam Pollock was the longtime manager of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team. The square, as well as the atrium in Brookfield Place, was designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and is one of the most beautiful indoor spots in town.
