Sit down on a handy bank and check your GPS from this spot to find the short path to the enormous Cleveland Public Library, or to the Federal Reserve or to enter the Soldiers' and Sailors' Monument. Branch off this spot for Progressive Field, or the "Q." Walk a few blocks north to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame or Great Lakes Science Center. Even the Flats is within walking distance.
