Plaza Lawton, officially Liwasang Bonifacio, is South Manila’s gateway to Downtown Manila. Located on the bend of the Pasig River, Plaza Lawton forms the northern end of Ermita and its greenbelt or park area. Three bridges cross into the plaza, making it a transit and vehicular traffic hub. Sadly, this area is blighted by bad infrastructure, neglect, and poverty, although there are some recent attempts to reclaim the area as a truly public space slowly.
