Beautiful Court Square

Memphis should be proud of the beauty that is Court Square.

But as Jane Jacobs observed, the beauty and amenities of a park aren't enough if the adjoining neighborhood lacks use and time diversity. More on that later.

nathan, I got inside the roof, as far as the spiral staircase that led to the hatch that led to the spire, before they told me to stop. Blast!

oh, and just to let you know, it's not a cupola. a cupola would be a domed structure like on the army hospital. i'm not quite sure what to call the top of the lincoln american.
