The Metro has an extensive public art collection, represented in all quadrants & in some out-of-the-way places. When I know I will have extra time in an area of the city, I check the city's Interactive Public Art Map & seek out interesting public art.

Pocket Park Along The Santo Domingo Trail -- MetroABQ NW

Pocket Park Along The Santo Domingo Trail -- MetroABQ NW
by Chris Lucas

On my way to a new listing (with a cool 3-D Walking Tour) in the Taylor Ranch neighborhood of Santa Fe Village, I pass a shaded little pocket park. Thirty-year mature shade trees line a 1/10-mile walkway with benches on each side; it meanders over a San Antonio arroyo culvert & connects to the Santo Domingo Bikepath greenspace. The park is a slice of green on the edge of busy Unser Blvd on one side & the limited-access Santa Fe Village pocket neighborhood on the other.   Read More

Open House: Historic SW Vernacular-Style Downtown Adobe.

Open House: Historic SW Vernacular-Style Downtown Adobe.
by Chris Lucas

SW Vernacular-style was popular in the early 1900's; it consists of creative ways to express rooflines that diverge from the typical Spanish Pueblo Revival style. Join me this Sunday, June 24th, for an Open House at this urban & unique adobe-built, SW Vernacular-style home. It lives Downtown at 900 Silver Ave SW & is a fun place to visit. I like how the kitchen has been remodeled to be included with the other public rooms, making it comfortable for the person(s) preparing dinner to converse directly with her/his guests.
