Art/Literary - Architecture / Historical Moscow Kremlin
Russian term or phrase: Ярославское место (within the Moscow Kremlin, 15th century)
"Иоанн (в 1492 году) велел разобрать ветхий дворец и поставить новый на Ярославском месте, за церковию Архангела Михаила."

The author is N.M. Karamzin. I need to find out what the customary name of this location/square/place/street is in English. I would appreciate any replies that include a source citation of how this has been named in English. The French translator (1820) called it "la place d'Yaroslaf." The German (1825) wrote "Jaroslaws Plaze." But I haven't found "Yaroslav Square" or "Yaroslav's Square" in any English sources. In the case of the famous "Yaroslav's Courtyard" in Novgorod, the construction is different: двор Ярославов.

There seems to be a footnote explaining it in a 1963 book by I.I. Lazhechnikov ("Basurman"), but I can't get Google Books to cough up the page with the footnote.
