Destination: Midtown Crossing

TURNER PARK, in the 80s and 90s (like a once-polished gentleman who had fallen on rough times, with frayed collars and perpetual five o’clock shadow) had seen better days. There were the odd Mutual of Omaha employees enjoying alfresco, brown bag lunches, rubbing proverbial, not literal, elbows with everyone from the homeless and itinerant workers currently unemployed, to drug dealers pushing their goods, to young mothers pushing strollers. Dining options along Farnam Street were limited to Kentucky Fried Chicken and the Chicago Bar. The “modern” Twin Towers and a number of red brick, pre-war apartment complexes along Dodge and circling Dewey Park provided the area’s living accommodations. Retail, other than the fabulous Frank’s Antiques, was non-existent.
