    Question about Los Angeles

    In a few days time I will be heading to the USA for a holiday. One of the places I'll be visiting is Los Angeles. During my holiday, I plan on visiting a few landmarks I have seen in various games. I have been able to locate most landmarks using google maps and a travel guide, but there is one place in Los Angeles that I've seen in games (both in the LA level in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and in Los Santos, which is the GTA San Adreas equivalent of LA) that I'm unable to find. It's probably a square, filled with various buildings in bright colors. There is supposed to be at least some kind of purple wall and a yellow square building, according to aforementioned games at least. I added two - not very clear, I admit - screenshots from THPS 3. You can see some of the buildings in the background. Does anyone recognize this place? What is it called, and where can I find it? Thanks a lot.

    The one from THPS3 is based on the real world Pershing Square.

    Wow, that was quick! Thanks! I'll try to think of something more difficult next time ;)
    That's the same square as in GTA San Andreas. Maybe I'll have time to check it out.

    It's the same one yeah, I just couldn't think of where it was in GTA:SA.

    Personally I think you should visit the real world Grove Street

    Unfortunately, I don't think I will visit that part of LA. Besides, there are more streets that look like Grove Street - I already did some searching ;)
