San Francisco Union Square is a 2.6-acre public plaza that abuts Geary Street and Stockton Street in Union Square, San Francisco. The square's main feature is a three-story, 48,000 square foot glass-enclosed shopping center that houses over 100 stores and restaurants. In addition to the shopping center, the square is home to a number of hotels, office buildings, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The square was originally designed by architect John Wallis Jones in 1850 as a gathering place for the city's residents. The original design included a central plaza surrounded by four smaller parks, each with its own fountain. However, the square was redesigned in 1879 by Frederick Law Olmsted, the architect of New York City's Central Park, after it was determined that the original design was not conducive to large gatherings. The current design of the square was completed in 1882 and has remained largely unchanged since then.
Union Square is one of the most popular tourist destinations in San Francisco, as it is home to a number of popular shops and restaurants. The square is also a popular gathering place for locals, as it is often the site of festivals and other events.
