Englewood : My New Hood

My New Hood Englewood
Went for a little jaunt through my new “hood”—Engelwood. There are a few things going on here. There may be possibilities for more to come. Guess we’ll see. But I’m assuming there is a bigger arts presence in and around Elgelwood/Independence.

Also took a little ride through “downtown” Independence. I have never seen so many churches—of all denomionations—in all my life! OMG! Literally!

Of course the biggest, tallest, best designed temple was a Mormon one. The spiral spire was breathtaking. Guess the Mormons in the area got some $$$ & clout. Kind of like back home in Ocean Grove, NJ. But this was even bigger! Yowzer!

I did a block by block survey of the streets to see what shops & businesses there were. There is also a very big indoor farmers market in downtown INMO. Wow! Will need to check it out. Of course pretty much EVERY store was closed on Sunday. Hmmm … wonder why? 😝

Will have to do further investigating Monday-Saturday and see how things are.

Anywho … photos I took in my—soon to be— new hood: Engelwood. Enjoy!


Mary Kelly:I am mesmerized by the color of the sky!

Joe Streno: It was just one of those kind of days. In the 70s, sunny, with a slight breeze blowing.❤️

Dorothy Orant Morrison:I saw that Mormon temple when I was checking out Independence. They expect 10% of parishioners salaries, Those Mormons are no joke.

Joe Streno: Yeah. It is kind of groovy. Small town kind of vibe, but artsy. I also went back to the house took some outside measurements. Needs a new driveway & sidewalk. Also found issues with the roof, gutters, and cracks in the foundation. Good thing my inspection is Wednesday. Hopefully some of these things will be fixed or credit to get them done after closing.
