That was just part of the trolley system. It would be more expensive to take it out, then to just leave it. Plus, I think they left it incase they wanted to get the trolley back on this line, although of course that got denied for safety precautions.

The trolley will work out of South End to uptown only. This is what you will see going the other way.

Thats good to know. I would have to question the need to restore the infrastructure if they weren't going to keep operating it.

Do they change the color for Christmas like they do the Empir State Building? I think it would be neat for them to change the colors for each holiday that has colors associated with it. I was up on the 60th floor a few weeks ago talking to one of their Executive Security Agents. He said they put a "gel" on the glass covering of each light to color it. Before I heard that, I was feeling sorry for the maintenance worker that had to go and change all of those bulbs.

And to think, this isn't the only area that will be a "forest of cranes". The Epicenter/Ritz Site is turning out the same way. It is insanely exciting.

And wait til One Charlotte and possibly Trump. Then if Gazi builds anytime soon on the other side of 277, you'll be driving through the "forest"

we are so lucky to have such vibrant colors in our city. It's not the tacky Florida colors, and it's not the rust colors of the North. It's just vibrant and exciting.

I agree, the picture really shows the character of S.End, and quite frankly, I love it! I hope the area just continues to snowball in its success stories and continues to neglect those that are trying to change its character or bring in such projects such as C, that will ruin the vibe that is developing. Great picture Krazeeboi.

Alrighty all... First time really taking night shots, brought my tripod downtown. Checked into the Bank of America garage to get some shots up there, also went to S. End. They came out pretty well for a newbie.

I sure wish the message was more simple, such as *Stop Crime*.

I love the art, but the message, to me, implies to only stop committing crime against each other...how about just NO CRIME?
