Westbury Square - "THE" place to be be seen and shop in its day.  European concept of unique shops and restaurants situated around a center courtyard complete with fountain, gas-style lighting & brick "streets" to stroll.  Quite innovative for the early 60's!  I had an apartment overlooking the courtyard and fountain when I was first married.  Would love to see someone buy the property and create an updated version of the once bustling square.  It truly was lovely.
