Martin Place

Martin Place is a pedestrian mall in the business district of Sydney, Australia and is one of the most iconic public spaces in Australia. It runs between George Street and Macquarie Street, and has a railway station below street level. Other cross streets include Pitt Street, Castlereagh Street, Elizabeth Street and Phillips Street.
Made traffic-free in 1971, Martin Place is surrounded by many heritage buildings and features the 1927 World War I ANZAC Cenotaph, water fountain, entertainment area, railway access and pedestrian seating. It is very popular at lunchtime, often crowded with office workers and bicycle couriers.
Buildings on Martin Place include:
The original Sydney General Post Office, now refurbished as a Westin hotel and Macquarie Bank office tower
Commonwealth Bank historic building
MLC & Colonial Building, also containing the Sydney newsdesk of the Seven Network, one of Australia's television networks. The studios are also used for the broadcast of a the Sunrise breakfast program and more recently The Mole, both of which allow a live audience to watch the show through the window. 巧遇國際巨星莎莉賽隆的簽名會>>>
