A closer view from the Obelisk. Could be closer, but for now, I'm just waiting to show you this Obelisk from a very very close angle. If I remember well, the picture has been taken from la Avenida Corrientes. Vue rapprochee de l'Obelisque. J'attends de vous montrer l'Obelisque de beaucoup plus pres. Si je me souviens bien, la photo a ete prise depuis l'Avenue Corrientes.

Curious how cities need their obelisk. I wonder why that is?

Is that the MacDonald's Kosheer in the background?

Bob- No idea about why so many cities need their obelisk ;) I really don't know. The McDonald´s in the background is not the Kosher one. The Kosher, I think, is located in the Jewish neighbor. The Obelisk is right in the micro-center, a far more touristic place than where the Kosher is located.

Maybe Joe, from RomeDailyPhoto , can shed some light on why cities need their obelisk. If my memory serves the Rome obelisk serve a key role in the DaVinci Code.

Manuel, Google says San Francisco has at least one obelisk. Specifically, "The Pine Tree Obelisk" by Joan Brown, 1987 in Walton Square.
