Standin on the Corner ParkKingsley at W. 2nd St. (Route 66), Winslow, AZ
The guy "Standin' on the Corner" with his guitar is the creation of sculptor Ron Adamson. It took 2 years to complete the Park which was dedicated in September 1999. This song put Winslow back on the map. By at least one estimate something like 100,000 people stand on this corner every year.
The wall of the old and now gone J.C. Penny-Rasco Building served as the canvas for the mural but a few years after the park was dedicated the store suffered a devastating fire. Fortunately they were able to save the wall and the mural. You have to admire a city that thinks this creatively. I'm not sure when the Penny's store was built, but it was listed at this address in the 1931 phonebook.
