Doggie in the Window


A downtown dog standing in a window, taking in the beautiful scenery in the alley between the buildings on Gold and Central (Old Route 66) in Downtown Albuquerque. The apartment is in an old federal building at 5th and Gold that was structurally questionable, and abandoned by the feds several years ago. Apparently, the ground floor has been repurposed into apartments, which must be considered structurally sound enough for a dog to live in.

Route 66 on Route 66


I have posted pieces of this mural in the past, but I don’t think I ever posted a panorama of it before. The mural is on the north facing wall of a condemned building on 2nd Street and Central Ave (Old Route 66), across from the street from the Sunshine Building in Downtown Albuquerque. I remember years ago there were offices in the building. The interior is split into two levels. When you walked in the front door, you faced the floor of the upper level at about eye level. Depending on where the offices were, you either had to go up stairs to the upper level or downstairs to the lower level.
