No, this photograph is not a mistake, but the scooters seem to be in a tug-of-war. Because something is missing.

Yesterday, Denver’s Land Use, Transportation & Infrastructure Committee received more information from the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, or DOTI, to help the city council representatives on the committee to push it along to the full council. But that did not happen; the next meeting about the scooter situation will be on Tuesday, April 27.  …

Why is it that developers or owners decide to submit the most totally crummy photographs in Denver’s application to tear a building down?

Perhaps, it’s because those who deal with the city’s Certificate of Demolition Eligibility process and their application submissions should be replaced by another apartment building? After all, submitting the kill-the-building application costs $250, while the three people who must cough up $875 because they are not owners of the building/s. An owner who wants to have …

Remember the pussy hats? Even before that pink wave, the concept of knitting somehow got political.

This has been a sad and horrible week, difficult to sleep, stop watching the news about a massacre, and why so many guns. It seemed absolutely correct to stay up late last night to read The New Yorker. This is the Style & Design Issue, which is always dreamy, even though many of us are in …

Call it a re-run, but it holds up after almost a year: We still want to see the mountains.

“The concept of a view plane was codified about 70 years ago in an ordinance by the City and County of Denver, preserving the views of the mountains to the west. They serve as a backdrop for beauty, and for residents and visitors who love those views. Driving into Denver from the east to move …

Because perhaps we will only see snow this weekend, covering everything.

Something more meaningful seemed right today. But then, I saw a lengthy story on Denverite that has a lot of good information. Yes: This weekend, it’s about snow.  For anyone who has lived in Colorado, things can become murky. Things also can be treacherous. Having lived through several big dumps – including the six blizzards in a …

When someone wants to know what will be built on a piece of land, but only can address the rezoning: It’s, uh, interesting.

It’s sort of like someone gives you a great bottle of wine, but you can only look at the label. But last night, the Denver City Council opened a public hearing, and the council members had a lot of questions and comments. Why? The land at 4700 East Evans Avenue was to change the zoning classification, …

“Jacob Lawrence’s Art Is Larger Than It Looks.” That’s an old headline, but it still works.

For anyone who loves art, it’s not unusual that someone might find a painting or a sculpture in an attic or a garage, and think it might be worth something. Of course, not usually, but in the news this week, there are numerous articles about two New York residents who each discovered that they had a …

“The cheese grater. Coarse.”

Dezeen Weekly is a good read, even though it sometimes can be snarky when commenters take on a building or an interior.  This week’s Dezeen included a building to be constructed in Denver. Jeanne Gang’s Populus – the three-sided hotel building to be located on West Colfax Avenue -- is sort of a surprise. What is unusual, architecture and design online posting usually takes us around …

Half a million people have died of COVID-19 in the United States as of this week.

Though a count of The New York Times database had not reached that figure, but it will reach it. And according to that database, “Denver County is at a very high risk level.” Just what I wanted to hear! Still, the database noted that cases, deaths and hospitalizations in Denver County were way down.  When a president …
