Congratulations to Joe Tilton, Jeff H., and Jason Schaefer for correctly identifying our last sidewalk view as Jaeger Avenue looking west toward Newburg Road. For the next sidewalk photo, we’re going to take a slightly different vantage point. Guesses in the comments.

  1. I believe Ken is correct. It appears to be taken from PARC’s Eighth & Main Garage looking down onto 8th Street near Pike Street.

  2. I agree, Brent. It doesn’t sound all that flattering on the surface, but I have no doubt Nashville would do the same thing if the roles were reversed.

    Also, why doesn’t Nashville have flood walls?

  3. Was walking down broadway a few minutes ago and noticed a building going up a little past the corner on the east side of 9th. Anyone know what it is?
