Being behind handlebars instead of a steering wheel has encouraged me to look up and see stuff. Like the upper corners of buildings. Upper corners are the meeting places for some of the most interesting details of architecture. Here are four:
Neil P. Anderson Building (1921, Sanguinet and Staats).
Meacham Building (1925, Clarkson). This was the original home of Sanger Brothers Department Store before it moved to 410 Houston.
Sanger Building (1929, Hedrick). The department store moved here from the Meacham Building.
If you recognize this building, you’re spending too much time looking for a parking space at the Stockyards. It’s the McCarthy Building (1927) at North Main and NE 23rd Street.
