Capital Park just went through a major overhaul. The park got a much needed renovation which added new green space and sidewalks. Once a mjor transportation hub, the park is much more calm after the opening of the new state-of-the-art Rosa Parks’ Terminal. Several building are part of a RFP package being shopped now towards future developers. Let’s hope this great area gets a grand rebirth, it’s one of my favorite places in the city.
Take a look at the photograph entitled “Advanced Vaudeville: 1912“:
