An Evening at Rosa Parks Circle Downtown

Recommended Posts

As I mentioned to Andy last night, quite a crowd downtown last night. The only metered spot I could find open was near Fountain Street Church, but still not a bad night for a walk.

Mind you, these are with NO TRIPOD using a long exposure (very difficult to do), so be nice :)

I wish this one would have come out better. It looked really cool with the orange uplighting on Plaza Towers and the steam. Need a new camera.

Enjoy! I posted a few on the flickr group, so they should be on the UP homepage slideshow for awhile. :thumbsup:

If anyone else posted any, feel free to post them here.

Is there any way someone could put a 50 foot Christmas tree in that park. It would be a great setting for such a thing!

I agree, the big Christmas Tree in front of the arena looks so lonely on a sea of concrete. They need to move it.

Great pics, GRDad, glad to see that it still is an attraction for people, even if it is a limited time only.

You would think that with all the concerts held there during the summer, and Festival in the spring, that retailers would be climbing over each other to put up a store on Monroe Center. The city is doing its part by promoting events to bring people down there, it is up to the conservative business owners to take a chance and open up some more shops.

Actually Prankster, there really aren't that many spots open around Rosa Parks Circle, Monroe Center or Ottawa. The National City building's ground floor is full, Ledyard is full (except one of the jewelers is moving), ground floor McKay Tower is full (I believe). This is all I get when I do a search (15 listings):

edit: that doesn't work. Go HERE and pick property type "retail" and street "monroe center". ;)

I'm talking about the 4 or 5 spaces still empty along Monroe Center, plus there are several still empty along Ionia south of Fulton.
