The Gate is a magnificent site on its own, but there is a very cool historical display. Even if you can't read all the explanations, the photos tell the story pretty well. See my travelogue for a photo of the "old/new" view of the Gate.

Arount the area there are several chains (Starbucks/Dunkin'Donuts) for a snack or coffee...the Donuts place is good for a quick bathroom break. Starbucks is always too crowded. Who knows why.
