An under-bridge Eden
I like this lovely spot beneath the Acosta Bridge in Jacksonville. Usually the spaces below urban bridges and overpasses are done in the Early Apocalypse style: discarded clothes, urine-stained sleeping bags and plastic liquor bottles. And, as accents, a few used condoms. In my humble opinion, this is better. I know this kind of thing takes money, but it sure seems like money well spent.
That is lovely, and an amazing thing to find in Jacksonville. Isn’t there a farmers’ market under one of the other bridges?

Yes, the Riverside Arts Market is under the Fuller Warren Bridge. The bridge provides shade in the summer and shelter from the rain. Live bands play down there every Saturday, too.

This is beautiful. I don’t know how much the lights and the building cost, but I think that paving and landscaping are relatively inexpensive. Of course there are the maintenance costs to consider. But all-in-all, I agree that it’s money well spent.
