that small white car about 3 back on the left probably had worst gas mileage than a modern f-150

There were more than a few random apartments lighted up two nights ago in the Skyhouse, as if people had moved in. Does anyone know?

When we get the office and apt tower at 5th & Broad, it will help fill in that toothless grin quite a bit. :D

That is a great angle. I'd like to see a picture from this angle after Bridgestone, 505, and jw are finished.

We need someone to go to some strategic areas around downtown and install a few live cameras.  U.P. Live Cams all over the city.  Love the one at the Science Center...but would also be great to have a few on the tower at Bridgestone Arena pointing N, S, E, W...and one on Nissan Stadium facing downtown (yes...News2 has both of those, but they're not public).  Maybe one on Skyhouse that could point towards downtown or Music Row.

A couple of photos from the mid 1990s, when Lower Broad was beginning to emerge from its time as a haven for peep shows and hookers. The new arena opening marked the beginning of a remarkable renaissance! And for a while, even Hollywood (well, Planet Hollywood) came to town:tw_glasses:

 

I still have my t-shirt from Planet Hollywood!!

Some older images of Broadway I found online.

Never realized that Paradise Park had reused an old sign, that is cool.  Also the strange design of the building seems to predate new broadway as well.  also notice the freidman sign on the left, the building looks like it is about to fall down, but now is still there.

Paradise Park was a "modern" furniture store that remained open for business until at least the late 1980s. There were numerous furniture stores that remained along Broadway and on 3rd Avenue, serving suburban shoppers by day as the less reputable vendors plied their trades under cover of darkness.
