Monte Vista Triangle One-Mile Walking Tour: Monte Vista Elementary

Monte Vista Triangle One-Mile Walking Tour: Monte Vista Elementary
by Chris Lucas

Monte Vista Triangle Walking Tour

Exploring the buildings of the Nob Hill Neighborhoods is a great walk, specifically the Monte Vista Triangle, a pizza-shaped slice in the historic Monte Vista Addition. Below is my one-mile architectural walking tour that celebrates the numerous unique building styles in that area. Anchored by Monte Vista Elementary School, one of the best examples of Mediterranean Revival architecture in the city, the neighborhood surrounding the school boasts a significantly large number of homes from the 1920's--1950's & beyond. The Monte Vista Triangle Walking Tour, seen above, zigs & zags through the pocket Monte Vista Triangle section, passing by a few gems, among many.  Read More

by Chris Lucas

The MetroABQ has a great supply of art & artists. They can be found in the galleries, of course, often regulated during monthly ARTScrawl & First Friday art events. However, some of the best art can be found outside, as geometric fractals created by school-age children, & especially large-scale building-length mural projects, which have proliferated beautifully in our city lately, like this one on the edge of Uptown.  Read More
