Curious Louisville: Why Do We Give Directions With Landmarks That No Longer Exist?
What do you wonder about Louisville, and the people who call it home? Last month, WFPL News launched a new series called Curious Louisville. In it, we answer your questions about our city (submit yours here!).
To kick off the series, we answer a question from Catiriana Reyes, who grew up in West Louisville and is now living in Brooklyn. She asks:
"Why do people in Louisville give directions based on landmarks that are no longer there? Like, turn left at the old Sears building?"
WFPL's Jake Ryan and I spent a week tracking down the answer. Think you know? Listen in the player above and find out.
