These are photos from the McCullough Street bridge (In between the AT&T buildings for those not familar with the area). From the very begining of the project I took a photo of the Northside and Southside of the bridge about every 2 weeks over the 2 year construction period(these are not all the photos. The first post will have the Northside of the bridge. And I will do the Southside in a second post. Enjoy!

The pics really show the transition. Now you can get downtown via the riverwalk and bike paths from Brackenridge park. It's a great transition.

Once the streetcar system is in place, the central loop, especially River North, is going to kick so much butt for residents and not just tourists.

I have to admit, the water has not cleared up and it is still brown and foamy. It was my understanded they were pumping clean recycled water and the rock bottom was suppose to act as a filter. I think we are still getting all the hippo diarrhea from the zoo. I am still hoping it will clear up and the fish & turtles will return.

Any bet as to how quickly the gangster will shoot out the "Art Fish" hanging under the over pass(or steal them). I have a bad feeling this new museum reach will be a haven for graffitti. The area between the AT&T buildings and the Pearl Brewery is still very desolate. SAPD better set up a permanent camp down there unless they want the local gangsters to add their own "art Projects" to the riverwalk.

Why do you keep using the word "gangsters"? It's not gangsters that do that type of stuff. It's adolescent aholes who don't respect anyone or anything.

As for worrying about the new segment. I wouldn't. That area is just old industrial at best and isn't some type of haven for crime so why youths would bother to make the trip down there makes no sense. Also, you'd expect a police presence no matter what.
