The statue is in a small square that is basically a funnelling point for the vast quantity of people trying to get up the steps to boulevard by the river.
The statue looks suspiciously like Chairman Mao but is in fact Shanghai's first mayor. I wouldn't recommend heading here specially but if you are going up to the river then you can't very well miss this statue.

This site offers very nice views of buildings & architecture along the Bund, ships on the river, and the towers of "new Shanghai" across the river. Don't miss the large "Wall Street Bull" statue farther down. Pleasant place for a stroll.

This really small square holds tall trees and a larger-than-life-size statue of Chen Yi, Mayor of Shanghai from 1949 to 1958 and Minister of China between 1958 and 1972. The bronze statue stands on a high red-marble pedestal with the years, 1901-1972. Chen Yi is depicted gazing down in a Mao suit with an overcoat draped over the left arm. A separate marker gives information about him in Chinese.

Located on The Bund, across the street from the Fairmont Peace Hotel and the Bank of China, the square is just below the promenade along the Huangpu River. I came down from that sun-drenched walkway for a few minutes to seek shade from one of the square's trees but there was no other reason to linger.

Imposing statue of an early mayor of Shanghai. Not much significance for non-Chinese and perhaps not even for Chinese except for those really into history. Located under the trees at the north end of the Bund.

Chenyi Square its located within the Bund area and its the main gathering place for locals and tourist to celebrate the big festivities in China. It can hold massive crowds (and sometimes It could be dangerous like the stampede of last year) so try to be careful and choose a good location within the square. Views from the area are beautiful, specially at night so don't miss it...
