Think about pre-60ies urbanism. And "new urbanism", for example.
Here are some examples in New England (I do not know them from visiting,
but they are obvious from looking at the map):

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/474864229
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/474864229 Union Square

Also this could be a square:

(sorry no time for more examples now)

Cheers
Martin
