Atlanta doesn't have a "square", though Peachtree Street is widely famous. I guess some would consider the Centennial Park area the newer central gathering spot though, since you have the park, surrounded by CNN, the Aquarium, Coke museum, among others in the future: Welcome to Centennial Olympic Park

Don't know if it's famous, but maybe I'll make it that way.

Main Street Square, Houston

Stop lying to the people, jfre. You know that's not Houston. It's obvious because 1) people are out in the street 2) I don't see a single cowboy hat or KKK hood and 3) it's not a sprawlicious 'burb.

Here's Houston's real most famous square:

For Boston, it would be Copley Square. 4 architecturally beautiful buildings surround the Square: John Hancock Tower, Fairmont Copley Hotel, Boston Public Library, the Old South Church, and Trinity Church.
