The End of Congress Street

Or is it just the beginning?

This is the monument where Congress Street ends/begins at the Eastern Promenade. I previously photographed the obelisk and it's tribute to the present and former names of this city here.


Not too far away on Congress Street, Blue Spoon and the Observatory:


  1. Place like Bar Lola, Blue Spoon, Hilltop Coffee, Montrose Bakery, Front Room (am I forgetting anywhere?) should be commended for their effect on this neighborhood. The place remains an intact working class neighborhood in some places, yet draws an eclectic crowd from a variety of other walks of life, too, and has recently become a destination in its own right.

  2. I meant Rosemont Bakery, which has a store in Montrose, hence the confusion.
