Piccadilly Gardens used to bloom; here's actual proof!

This is the location of the main transit hub, located in Manc's City Centre; it's where you can board a bus, a tram, a commuter rail to destinations around the UK and even light rail to the airports. There are numerous hotels here also.  The area was built up heavily & became a blighted concrete jungle in the 80s and 90s.
The resulting space was radically different from the old gardens, and the only links to the past that remained were the original statues.
Since the turn of the 21st century developers have been spearheading efforts to improve on what the locals complained was "cold modernist" concrete design and clean up much of the litter.
