Today after going to the very friendly and refurbished PNC Bank downtown, I proceeded on to West Front Street. This demolished tree was one of my first sights.
This building facade sports a message from way back when there was some sort of game thing going on, or whatever. Who knows.
In my great taxi experiment since ditching my car, I have never tried any company but Liberty. So when their Church Street office closed, I wondered if they were still in business. Yes, they are, in one of the Park-Madison office buildings store fronts.
Having not traversed West Front Street between Somerset and Madison recently, I was surprised at the number of day laborers standing around at about 11:30 a.m. I had hoped to see whether any signage existed on the new proposal for the first commercial development in eight years (aka the Cretella proposal to redevelop the Appliance-Arama building and two adjacent city-owned lots) , but the sight of several dozen labor hopefuls on the block distracted me.
