From Shopping to Learning

This area in downtown Phoenix started its life as The Mercado, a shopping and dining place. Now it is part of the downtown campus of Arizona State University. What a pleasant place for learning.

Great contrast to the building in the background. Very nice perspective.

The expansion of the downtown Phoenix campus of ASU has added life and vitality to downtown, as the presence of young people on the streets is a good thing, and it will help support local restaurants.

Must have been a nice place to shop. How can anyone actually sit out there in your heat?!!

Will be a bustling place when the weather turns nice.

Indeed! A fine place to kick back and study... and feed your face.

This is great! What a nice setting for the students. I didn't know that this was now part of ASU. Gorgeous picture too.
