Some poetry….

Giant steel beams frame vintage metal sheds.

Sun pours thru broken roofs and shattered panes to spotlight art.

Kelly-green grass sprouts over puzzled rails that once fueled industry. 

 

For decades she has sat idle… 

her song muffled from neglect, her soul hidden from view. 

A mysterious shell used only for the occasional film backdrop or graffiti canvas.

 

“What is that place?” They ask driving by on Dekalb.

“I wonder what’s inside”, they say walking by along the path.

 

Little do they know she is yearning to pull the curtain.

Waiting to be re-purposed. Wishing to be seen. Ready to be reborn. 

 

And now destiny calls. 

The winds of the Phoenix are aligning to birth new life at Pullman Yard.

 

On the horizon, a fresh vision ascends. A dynamic plan charts transformation…

 

Historic preservation. 

Sports and fitness. 

Arts, games and performances. 

Healthy foods and nutrition. 

Fun by design. Collaborative by default. Community hub for play and wellness.

 

A gem for the city. In Kirkwood’s front yard. 

 

If you stand just so, at her core  …and look and listen deeply, you can see the grand aesthetics taking shape. You can hear the thrills of tomorrow. 

 

But today she awaits the opportunity. 

 

Fences line the property, but they can’t contain its promise.

Grime covers her relics, but it can’t mask her beauty.

Hungry vines grow thru twisted metal and splintered brick proving life undeterred, …foreshadowing triumph. 

 

And so she will.

 

A new day is dawning at Pullman Yard. Come join us as we plant the seed!
