The Midtown Global Market Place:

IMG_0676.JPGI think this place is aptly named: you can see people of different social groups (different ages, different social class, etc) and also find products from different countries. This is I think what makes it « global ». I also noticed that the tables are really close to each other, which I think enhances to talk to new people. Furthermore, there is no music playing, which I think drives people to speak to each other to avoid awkward silence (instead of just being on their phones as we often see in restaurants). So this building can definitely be considered an encountering place.
