They’re Everywhere

Urban walking, revealer of that which you’re surrounded by but are just too darned busy to notice. Take a longer route to wherever your destination is? Even just a block out of the way? Preposterous!

Even if you’re not keen on walking through alleys or those barren corridors behind big box retailers – the very province of semi-trucks and cigarette butts – there are countless delights to be found. Every street is steeped in the life that it contains, from bland garages to quirky homes.

And of course the frontwaters. The trendy spots you never thought to visit but all of a sudden come into view. The robust avenues that simply weren’t built with consideration of whatever your demographic profile is (never heard of’em, never realized that you didn’t even think to visit).

It’s all but a block from your routine.

  1. Nice post of architecture and space. I found it’s quite interesting to view the space/place through different lenses…http://wp.me/p3bwN9-2X
