On Saturday some of us met up at the intersection of Central Avenue and Cooper Street. I go through this intersection nearly every day, and it is always hopping. The first drawing below is of the Midtown Nursery on the northwest corner. The corner is very small as it backs up to an elevated train that runs diagonally, so that trestles for it span both central and cooper. The nursery is currently selling Christmas trees and wreaths, and is quite festive.
Below that is the view looking north at the trestle spanning Cooper.
The bottom sketch is from the Palladio Cafe, just east of Cooper and Central. It is a nice cafe within an antique mall, and they have cute Christmas decorations on the table.
