Naomi and I have not lived in a city for a very long time. It is a treat to be able to walk out of your home and enjoy restaurants and the arts. A block away from our apartment is the Milwaukee Delicatessen: a wonderful place to relax. Perhaps it is the mid-western attitude or the character of a neighborhood landmark, but the atmosphere is unhurried and friendly. The pizza is great too. Click on the image for a larger view.
This Egyptian Revival monument was originally named the Liberty Memorial and dedicated to those that died during the Great War. Two Assyrian sphinxes flank the Liberty Tower. Each sphinx hiding its face with its wings. The sphinx shown here is known as Memory, facing East toward the battlefields of Europe. The other is Future. Click on the image for a larger view.
909 Walnut, also known as the Fidelity Building, is an iconic Kansas City landmark. This 1931 Art Deco/Greek Revival building has been a bank, Federal offices, including a Federal weather station, and, currently, a residential tower block. It is also a landmark on my commute.
