Straight down the middle of this photograph is where Hogan's Alley once ran. That's Gore Street in front. Behind me are the remnants of the actual alley itself. The green space you see is a holdover from the 1960s plan to put an eight-lane freeway through here. When the plan was defeated by community activists, the only segment that was completed was the viaduct, and this awkwardly shaped lot was left without any particular use. Most people assume it's a park, but technically it is non-Parks Board city property. It's the perfect spot for a memorial to the community that used to live here, we think.
