Both Google Maps and Google Earth still show the Piccadilly Gardens from about 10 years go before it was re-done, they still show bits destroyed by the bomb too.

Random boldening[edit]

Too many items are boldened. Skinnyweed 23:02, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

  • I agree. The first mention of "Piccadilly Gardens" should remain in bold I think, but having the name in bold everytime it is mentioned seems a little excessive. Road Wizard 23:15, 30 April 2006 (UTC)
Also, having each statue's name in bold doesn't serve much purpose. Road Wizard 23:37, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

Buildings Of Interest[edit]

This section seems very fuzzy, what do the numbers in bold refer to?.

It also looks a bit out of date. Barclays closed a couple of years ago, and it refers to doing things to Piccadilly Plaza as of 2005. It's been a while since I paid any attention to Piccadilly Gardens so maybe someone with a bit more knowledge could update it. mh. 21:53, 27 June 2007 (UTC)
The fuzziness needs clarifying -- there can't be two 'no. 1 Piccadilly' buildings. All the detail is available on the English Heritage Gateway and I am sure the City Council has it in more cogent form. Starting at Tib Street the odd numbers go from 1 to 61, then Newton St, then 63 etc. and the even numbers like the Hoyle Bldg opposite towards the railway station. The east side is Portland St, the south Parker St and the west Mosley St (one could even argue that Piccadilly Gardens is not a street name at all). I think it was invented by the bus companies to make the bus station sound nicer: then the gardens were got rid of.----Felix Folio Secundus (talk) 12:01, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

City Tower Image Caption[edit]

Is there really any need to use alliteration for it's description? "The Towering City Tower" seems a little excessive and frankly childish. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:14, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
