Doesn't take long to visit. Neat spot with giant metal spire nearby. It's cool to stand in the center and hear your voice echo.

So, this is a really fun 30-45 seconds. The spot isn’t marked at all, but you’ll see a couple foot diameter cement circle with bricks around it in the center of the walk way on the bridge over the train tracks. If you stand there...More

A little hard to find unless people have already beat you there. If you have the time stop by, there is a definite louder echoe back to you when you stand in the circle as the distortion outside I am not so convinced

This is easy to get to and interesting to see. Recommend going during the day as not in the best area. Was fun to stand in center and try to hear voice echoeing. Walking distance from Downtown

its just an echo and nothing more then that. If you walk by it on the way to do something or at the art crawl then cool but if not, don't go just for this

What to say about downtown. It's a lot less scary now. Still a little scary. Kinda like a the "6th Sense" level of scary. There are still vagrants but they don't really bug you. Anyways it is kinda cool I guess.

Still not sure exactly how it works, but it does. When you first try it, other bystanders will watch your reaction. Then when the next person ventures up, you get to see their reaction!

I don’t think it’s a good place for a wedding. It’s a busy public sidewalk.
