It is the unique, and even sometimes the odd, that makes a place interesting and defined.
Lake City has a few quirky and unique elements that help to define the neighborhood (although we could use many more).
The old bank facade, aka the "Arc de Lake City," at the Mini Park at 125th and LCW is one that comes to mind.
Also the giraffe near the intersection of 30th Avenue NE and LCW is an element that breaks up a drive along the arterial roadway.
The steel sculpture in front of the Verizon Wireless retail store and the boulders with fins in the median of LCW are works of art that help to give our neighborhood some character.
The almost iconic neon sign on Lake City Powersports and Dick's Drive-In's neon give a bit of color to our neighborhood during these dark and dreary days.
Well it seems we have another quirky thing to add to the visual elements that make LCW a bit different that the endless stretches of commercial-lined highways we all travel everyday.
This guy (below) has been making appearances on the road near the intersection of LCW and NE 123rd Street.
