I go by there practically every day on the bus going to work... I looked it up as soon as I saw a name as I was curious what it was going to be.

Weird thing over McDowell


This is the oldest non-native house in Phoenix still standing from 1870. It was Darrell Duppa's house, the man credited with naming Phoenix and Tempe


For some reason this one of my favorite views on the way into downtown


Sunnyslope


Odd little park hidden in the middle of a Central PHX neighborhood. I like it's simplicity.

21st/22nd St. and Oregon? or Georgia? It's in the old mansions by the Biltmore.

Default Eastlake Park

This is definitely not a complete tour, but here are some pix from my neighborhood, Eastlake Park!
__________________________________________________ _______________________________



The red shaded area is the Eastlake Park Neighborhood. North is Garfield, West is Booker T. Washington, East is ESP, and South is railroad tracks (no residential).




As you see, we have our own light rail stop, woo-hoo lol




Here is some interesting historical information regarding the neighborhood for those interested. (You can enlarge to make it readable. This sign is posted on the Eastlake Park train platform).




Looking at the train-stop from the North.




We are so close to downtown that some of the alleys are actually paved, which is a rarity in Phoenix.




Intersection. This was one of the more intelligent taggers, as the grafitti on the stop sign implies the question: Why did WTC Tower 7 fall on 9/11?
Dang, that's a good question, 9/11 Truth Movement!!




This was the old Bobby C's. Shame they closed, great food & music.




12th St & Van Buren, looking West at downtown PHX.




Same corner, 12th St & Van Buren, looking East at La Tolteca.




La Tolteca, Van Buren Side.




La Tolteca where they grill the chicken. Man I love the pollo asado from that place, gotta try it (if you haven't)!




This barber shop is across the street from La Tolteca, so it's actually in Garfield, but I wanted to put up a pic because it's owned by very nice people and they always do a good job when I bring my kids there.




African/Caribbean Yerberia that practices Santeria. Very cool, too bad they're closed down.




13th St & Monroe.




13th St & Monroe, with a youngster holdin' down the block (face blurred to protect the innocent)




Vacant lot on 12th St & Adams.




16th St & Monroe, location of the next two pics.




La Frontera. Home of the best and most authentic Mexican tacos in the city. Only place that can compete is El Taco-Tote on 35th Ave & Camelback.




La Frontera (16th St & Monroe).




Looking toward downtown Phoenix from the roof of a house in the neighborhood.

Took some photos around Downtown during the Holidays. 12/23

It was Sunday, but there was some good activity on Washington and Central by Cityscape where the ice skating rink was located.

I rarely see DT Phoenix at night, so I thought i would fill the GAP.






















































































This was earlier during the sunset by my house... love this sky.

I don't know if it's just me (or my browser), but I don't see anything.
