A few days ago I promised to post some updated photos I'd taken in The Yards
, which I'm finally getting to. (Been sick as a dog for more than week now, which I blame squarely on Mother Nature's poor performance during the first games at the ballpark.) They're not exactly barnburner photos, since they're mostly shots of either newly paved parking lots or scads of dirt waiting to be turned into something. But, follow the
icon for new images of the Boilermaker Shop
(above), the Waterfront Park
, and the Pattern Shop Lofts
, all of which are scheduled to open in 2009.
I've also added additional photos to the archive
, at "intersections" that don't actually exist just yet, but provide additional views of what's happened so far: 1 1/2 Half at N
(where the old GPO building was--seriously, it's going to be called "1 1/2 Street"); Second at Tingey
and Second at Water
(which will become real intersections when Second is eventually built south of Tingey and Water Street becomes a new road north of the park); and Third and Tingey
(which will become more of an intersection when Third Street is extended one block south, to the new Water Street). See the map
to get a clearer idea of what I'm babbling about. And eventually I'll take some new photos from the Fourth Street side, too.
