the geography of Baker tweets

MapBox has teamed with Gnip to build powerful visualizations of Twitter data, giving us a fresh way to look at the geography of Baker…

this image is from an interactive map of tweets made from mobile devices, centered on Baker; 6th Ave & Mississippi are at top & bottom, Broadway/Lincoln are on the right and the diagonals of I-25 and the light rail are clearly visible

Hazel & Dewey

Hazel & Dewey is a "modern mercantile" in the emerging scene of locally-owned businesses with well-curated product selections; the store feels like a small museum of functional design, focused on kitchen-to-table items, but also with art, greeting cards, a few fine edibles … a great place to shop for gifts

B-cycle installed at 1st & Broadway

B-cycle waited until construction of the station had begun on 17 April, three weeks after we noted that Denver Urbanism spilled the beans, to officially confirm the location of Baker's first B-cycle station; an email from B-cycle today also says another station has opened close to Baker at Bayaud & Pennsylvania

interior of Webber Theater (Kitty's South), September 2012

Westword today quoted our 2011 article on the Webber Theater, so it seemed worth putting up this grab-shot of the interior during taken another spate of work in September 2012

this shot shows the lobby structure mostly removed, and debris being cleared from the gaping void of the slope-floored original theater space; the old proscenium is dimly visible

like Westword, we have no news on the building's fate

B-cycle coming to 1st & Broadway

when B-cycle recently announced addition of 31 new stations, Baker was mentioned, but details were lacking; we tried to pin them down, but B-cycle wrote back, "We have not yet announced all of the exact station locations, but if you are subscribed to our newsletter and social media, you will get the news as soon as it becomes public." …

no such details have emerged on @Denver_Bcycle, but the Denver Urbanism blog spilled the beans today: "The addition of a station on South Broadway at 1st Avenue, will be welcomed by the busy South Broadway commercial district." (nitpick: 1st Ave. intersects with North Broadway)

ampersands on Broadway #8: a new address for a dress?

detail of a child’s dress recently for sale at Compassion Thrift Store, 414 Broadway (spotted by Loretta K.)

this is our most enigmatic ampersand yet: a post-modern combination of birds in flight, dapper foxes with helium balloons, lace fringe, and the word — not the glyph — Ampersand in a typeface a step above Comic Sans; we can only imagine how this has influenced the children who’ve worn it; it may still be there waiting to be worn again
