This is what all parking garages should look like. They should be under a park with trees, flowers, art, and people with smiling faces. Actually, we are fortunate to have this park and parking garage in front of our condo complex in uptown Charlotte. The park and the parking garage are called The Green for good reason.
The recently opened Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel has a roof top bar which we have attempted to visit twice. However it is closed on Sundays and that is the day we keep trying. Maybe the front desk will let management know there is an opportunity on Sunday because they are having to turn people away ;)
I took this photo because I liked the contrast of shadows and sunlight. The red brick building, in the background, sits behind Saint Peters Catholic Church and as you can see the building has a modern “church architecture“.
The building houses a pizza restaurant, a steak restaurant, and office space.
We are experiencing icy conditions in Uptown Charlotte. There was not much snow however it is very cold. The main roads and sidewalks are cleared. However, the side roads and sidewalks are still very treacherous.
Look closely and you will find a hammock in this photo. Also, the Uptown Skyline is in the background. We enjoy long walks on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway while someone appears to enjoys long naps in a hammock.
On the weekends, we enjoy walking on the Little Sugar Creek Greenway and we especially enjoy the trees. This tree is found at the entrance to Freedom Park. As you can see it was back lit by the evening sun.
Following are links to post of trees we have shared in the past.
Continuing a transportation theme, we are sharing this photo of the train at Freedom Park near Uptown Charlotte. We enjoy watching children play on this train when we visit the park. Our grandson plays on it regularly. A plaque says the train was built in 1920 and when retied was one of the last steam locomotives in regular service.
