I appreciate the tribute, but I have to say that is one of the ugliest art installments I've seen. It looks so tacky. I can't believe it was allowed in such a prominent place. Oh well, there's my 2 cents as a lifelong Columbian.

I agree. i think the one in Lexington looks a lot better than this. When i ride through the Vista and pass the Convention center. I almost never see this thing because it doesn't catch my eye.

That's the back of it. The monument is supposed to recall the old World Trade Towers. I think the scale is nice, and I appreciate that a dog is part of it. And the bent metal beams are actually part of the old towers.

While out taking pictures of Construction in the area I decided to take an updated picture of Downtown from Finley Park. Been about 9 years since I took a picture from this area.

Thank you for taking those. It will be neat to juxtapose those with pictures of the development there a year from now.

Got into town today to bring some bottled water and check on my old stomping grounds. These photos are from the Forest Acres area and around the canal breach action.  I may get some more tomorrow before heading home.

The Curtiss Wright Hangar @ Owens Field in the Rosewood neighborhood.

 

A project to renovate it never materialized.  I hope it can be revived with the booming economy.  Here's a link to the facebook page with detail and some old photos:  https://www.facebook.com/TheCurtissWrightHangar/info?tab=overview

It looks like Curtiss-Wright will be the site of the second Hunter-Gatherer!

I totally missed this when it was first posted. I think this is awesome! I wish more bridges were built like Gervais St to begin with, but adding the faux architectural elements is a nice touch! Now if they could just do that to the other bridges across the Congaree...
