Charlotte has the dubious honor of being the third city, on the East coast, which offers the Lime Scooter for rent.
This photo was taken at the 1st Ward Park. Following is a link to link to the Lime website.
1st Ward Park, the newest park in Uptown Charlotte; offers grass, fountain, art, play ground equipment, and a room to walk your dog.
We especially enjoy the Children’s library next to the park.
Fountain and crown in the First Ward Park. This park is next to UNC Charlotte Center building.
The crown design follows the Charlotte crown city theme.
I like the shadows and the bird 😉
This photo was taken 301 East 7th Street. Following is a link to the First Ward Park.
UNC Charlotte has large campus North East of uptown however they also maintain a unique presence in Uptown.
Interestingly the uniqueness is not just the offset floors … notice the windows.
This photo was taken at 320 East North Street. Following is an article about the UNC Charlotte Center City
It was exciting and a little embarrassing to discover a new building in Uptown Charlotte. This building is located three blocks from where we live and was constructed in the last year.
Seriously I must be working too hard.
This photo was taken at 311 East 5th Street. Following is a link to Springhill Suites the newest property in Uptown Charlotte.
On Saint Patrick’s day there were lines of people in green. This photo shows a line of hungry people at the Halal Food Cart.
There were also lines, at the entrance of every bar. Thirsty people in green 😉
This photo was taken at the intersection of Trade and Tryon.
This lone soldier marched in Charlotte’s Saint Patrick’s day parade. There were floats, bands, bagpipes, and dancing children. But what moved me the most was this tribute to Ireland’s war service. Based on the uniform it would appear this was specific to WWI
Following is an interesting article about Ireland and World War I
Today I happened upon this professional photo shoot and I took a quick snap with my iPhone. It appears the goal was to advocate for efforts to keep the Charlotte Rail Trail clean.
Notice the perfect timing with the train entering the station.
This photo was taken at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and the light rail. The station is called the 3rd Street / Convention Center station.
A while back we took our grandson to the Children’s library in Uptown Charlotte. This art by Allison … and a few others … caught my eye.
The Children’s library is at ImaginOn at 300 East 7th Street and offers a fun filled afternoon for families.
This is my failed attempt to use the timed photo feature on my phone. Sometimes it is good to laugh at yourself 😉
The photo was taken in the lobby of the Belk Theater at intermission. And yes I had enjoyed a glass of wine before the photo 😉
The scene is of the Belk Theater at 130 North Tryon. Following is a link to a previously shared photo taken from outside the Belk Theater which is part of Blumenthal Performing Art.
