Those FLW rooflines really provide shelter. He was scary talented, and knew it! There is a famous one in Hollywood overlooking Highland called Hollyhock. One of a couple of textile block homes in L. A.

I used to live in Oak Park. It's really a beautiful city, small, intimate and very friendly people. I really miss Chicago and all of the beautiful architecture, taking a stroll down Belmont Harbor or just checking out some entertainment in Wicker Park. Anyone who hasn't been to Chicago should really visit some time.

There is a cool Frank Lloyd Wright house in Chicago about 7400 N. Sheridan. I walked by it all the time as a kid.

How do I know I'm in my town? The banners tell me. "You've arrived"

Default The Bridge

When you are driving south on Highway 101 you'll get to this bridge which goes over the bay. When you are halfway over the bridge you are in the city limits.

FLW architecture is all over. Wikipedia has a decent catalog of it.

I know I'm in Champaign when I am waiting at the stoplight and two CD tracks elapse before I get a green to go.
I know I'm in Ann Arbor when I start crying my eyes out.

That traffic light on NC Highway 75 is a sure sign that I am home again!

I would tell you more, but I have been slapped on the hand for advertising and don't want to innocently get that again.
