Pershing Point Park as a park and destination?

The trash cans were full but I've never seen any people there. I felt like a pioneer. My friend Jerry Phillips (R.I.P) used the live in some apartments there. Not in the Pershing Point apartments but just south of them in the same block. I'd love to find a picture.

It's a park

with free parking.

Quite well landscaped and cozy.

Folks don't think much about WW1 these days.

The benches list the battlefields.

The Pershing Point Apartments were once here.

Looking north to the curvy Ivesco Building. Buck Crook's Rhodes Center is the modest white building on the left. Rhodes Hall is just behind.

The Winnwood Apartments is a reminder of the classic days of Pershing Point architecture.

  1. Leigh and I lived at the Winwood when we first set up housekeeping together, our first and last Atlanta summer without airconditioning! Apart from a breeze, those open windows brought us the hum of Peachtree Street. From entrepreneurial car window washers to some Ansley Park kids who soaped the Federal Home Loan Bank fountain one night, 'twas never a dull moment.
