Around Town: The Corner



The Corner is a quarter mile of swag shops, greasy spoons, restaurants, and convenience stores along University Ave., roughly from about Chancellor street to the 14th street railroad bridge. In days past, bookstores and a cafeteria served university students across the street from the medical school. Today, the names of long gone stores are still painted on the sides of buildings, but a few historical bars and restaurants are still in business. At The White Spot, you can still get a grillswith (fried donuts with a topping of ice cream) or a gus burger (cheeseburger topped with a fried egg.) Along the south side of University Ave., a stone wall delineates university grounds from The Corner.

Gear Photos were shot with a Nikon Coolpix A, or with a Nikon D750 paired with a Zeiss Milvus 35 mm f/2.0.
