Julian is correct. That photo was taken from the north end of confederate park, past the edge of the monument to the women of the southland in Confederate park. You are looking at the old car storage building from the Calude Noldan Cadillac building, now known as the EH Thompson building.

Yes, Julian hit it right on.  We'll have to make these things a little more difficult.

I don't know the name of it, but it's on the SE corner of Prudential and Kings, across the street from the Wyndam Hotel and Kings Avenue skyway station.

That's a nice little area of redevelopment.  It was mentioned at the rail/BRT meeting, held by Councilwoman Johnson a few weeks back, that JTA is interested in purchasing this area for a potential transit center associated with BRT.  Let's hope this does not happen.  For some strange reason, we've historically found reasons to destroy areas where reinvestment is already taking place, instead of improving ones where it's not.  Sooner or later we have to deviate from that type of planning.

Close....  It is a church and it is in Jacksonville, but it's not the Emmaculate Conception.
