Our last sidewalk photo was correctly identified by Justin Elliott and Jeff Noble as Sixth Street looking north towards St. Catherine at St. Louis Bertrand Church in the Limerick neighborhood. Nicely done. Here’s a new sidewalk photo awaiting identification in the comments.
Our survey to determine your choice for Best New Landmark of 2009 officially closed Wednesday at 5:00pm and the votes have been tallied. I’ll post the winning landmarks and our prize recipients Friday morning. Special thanks to Steve Wiser for helping put the contest together and providing the prizes! There’s been a lot of news, but here’s some of the most interesting stories.
These news roundups take more time than any other post I write regularly on Broken Sidewalk. In an effort to provide the most valuable information to readers, I would like to know what news matters to you and perhaps what doesn’t. Do the links posted here 2-3 times a week provide helpful information to you? What do you like and what should be added or cast aside? There will always be a news roundup, but I would like to streamline the process just a little bit. Your opinions in the comments, please.
