^ Guys, I'm not planning on leaving (sorry Vicelord!) this site, I just don't have time to maintain that thread anymore. The fact that it has been pounded into my head by more than one person here that I'm "too negative" has made me think that perhaps I'm not the right one to keep it going. I'm also going to replace that folder of images with something more appropriate for my website. There's enough drama in this thread...don't need any more.

Moving on...

I don't think that thread will need to be updated for quite awhile.

Great shot! Looks like 44 monroe has more lights on??

gymratmanaz Mar 16, 2010 7:07 PM

I was wondering if I saw more furnature on balconies too. Anyone know a count for 44 Monroe?

Vicelord John Mar 16, 2010 7:33 PM

some of the lights on the north side of 44monroe I feel could be reflections. There are not that many occupied units, though there are more than before.

PhxPavilion Mar 17, 2010 12:25 PM

Most of those look like balcony lights.

I can't go to this (damn day job) but its an invite from ASU to talk with people from the community. I know there are going to be people there talking about adaptive reuses of the Ramada Inn instead of turning it into a parking lot. If you haven't already, you should email the City Council and let them know how foolish their decision is.

The Communities Connect Dialogues are a series of presentations, workshops, conversations, and celebrations that bring ASU students, faculty, staff, and community members together to build more connected, vibrant communities.

Join us as an Attendee in the Dialogues and you can:

SHARE your thoughts about improving our local communities
LEARN about resources at ASU and in the community that can support your efforts
FIND potential partners through multiple networking opportunities

Join us as a Presenter in the Dialogues and you can:

Enjoy all of the above and...
Showcase your community-based efforts by delivering a dynamic 10-minute presentation (there are opportunities to present on all four campuses, as indicated by the word SHARE below)

Individuals who are interested in presenting should contact Jacqueline Smith for guidelines and more information at All presentations will be video recorded and made available at ASU Community Connect <>. Presentations and topics will also be included in an upcoming publication featuring the many varied ways ASU and our communities work together for positive impact. Copies will be provided to all presenters and distributed widely throughout the university and beyond.

Downtown Phoenix Campus
Thursday, April 1, Civic Space Park, A.E. England Building
Join us for presentations and interactive workshops about setting up internships and finding community partners.

Phxpavilion.... No. Trust me those are reflections. I just looked at the full size.

I don't know this restaurant, so I can't qualify this as being "bad news" or "no one really cares news":

In a blow to the downtown Phoenix restaurant scene, Matt Carter's eight-month-old Nine 05 suddenly shut down Monday afternoon. But according to Carter, the closure had very little to do with the vibrancy of the Fourth Street and Roosevelt area. Instead, it had everything to do with tight money.

"My back was against the wall," he said in an interview Wednesday night...

I didn't know it was the same guy that also owned the Mission in Old Town, I freaking love that place!

PHX31 Mar 18, 2010 3:52 PM

Sounds like according to the article it wasn't that it was slow... but other deciding factors. That little strip is pretty cool, something will be back. Does that mean the bar is also closed?

Vicelord John Mar 18, 2010 3:53 PM

It blew. The concept and managment were shit.

Leo the Dog Mar 18, 2010 11:13 PM

Broken into 20 times since they opened? Who would want to even risk a new investment there?

Vicelord John Mar 19, 2010 12:13 AM

A lot of people dont like matt, and there are a lot of hipsters around there

New York Times article.
Not so good press for Phoenix, but does compliment the efforts downtown.

combusean Mar 20, 2010 4:12 AM
