  A View From the Walkway
by Bwana_Brown

I can imagine what the howling wintery blasts must be like in the mid-west so, as with many Canadian cities, it makes sense to travel indoors as much as possible! That was the idea behind a very nice elevated glass-covered walkway in the Crown Center area, connecting the Hyatt and Westin hotels as well as the shopping centre and Union Station. It is no problem to stoll above the streets enjoying the view as you walk!

Located at strategic spots along the way are displays that point out historical facts on some of the buildings that you can see from that spot. In this case, I've got the park area of Washington Square just below while off on the left horizon is the art-deco style Kansas City Power & Light building. To the right is the 1952-built Western Auto building with one side incorporating a sweeping curve as it parallels the railway tracks. It's sign with 10-foot high letters and 150-foot long flashing arrow is another eye-catcher during the night hours!

Directions: Crown Center area
