Crows Nest, a somewhat unimaginatively named suburb on Sydney's north shore, has always been a busy intersection as far back as I can recall.
It was here that you diverged off the Pacific Highway if you wanted to head towards Neutral Bay, Balmoral, Mosman and Manly. These days you still can but the freeway link to the Harbour Bridge and tunnel have taken much of the through traffic away. Crows Nest is still a vibrant suburb though.
This picture shows the Crows Nest Cummunity Centre with an architectural blend of castle-like towers set behind a colourful tiled fountain and grassy park. It was taken from a row of restaurants and small businesses that border the park.
Should you blow up the picture you will notice a sculptured crow atop the white pole. Can't think what that might signify!
