If I read a story in one venue reporting an uprising in Pearl Square and another in Pearl Roundabout … I would actually take issue with the one that was WRONG, not the one who named it correctly.

If all the other journalists jumped off a bridge …?

But I suppose calling it “Madison Garden Mall” when referring to Madison Square Garden would make it more understandable (universally, since everyone has gardens and Malls, right? I can understand changing between languages, but if the name of a site is Roundabout, the English equivalent is … Roundabout.
