Crimes of the Anasazi: Getting busted in Downtown’s embattled high-rise

It wasn’t a good idea. We knew that at the time, but I guess we thought we would get away with it.

On March 23, 2011, Mike Smith and I took the bus down Central through Albuquerque’s neon-lit Downtown. We were headed toward the Anasazi building. At nine stories tall, it towered over other buildings on the block, and its pueblo-influenced, multitier design gave its dark, empty windows romantic intrigue. Could we get in? What was inside? What would it be like to be one of the few people who had looked out of those lofty windows?

Near the very top of its eastern face, there was a tantalizing sign that entry was possible: A graffiti rainbow coursed from the rooftop down the bare side. If that artist could get in, so could we. We didn’t think about what would happen if we got caught; we just wanted to see it from the inside.

How do we make it go?

Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Organic farm formerly operated by Seeds of Change

Remember when Santa Fe-based organic seed/food company Seeds of Change got bought out by behemoth Mars, Inc? And everyone said it was just a cynical green-washing PR ploy? And they were right, because Mars shut the farm down and moved operations completely out of state, but retained the company’s made-from-scratch brand and feel-good history for itself?

You can buy that farm. It’s on 14 acres in El Guique, just north of Española. The property comes with a residence, two green houses, a 5,000 square-foot processing building and an apple orchard. And it’s certified organic.

The Architectural Undead

A 103-year-old University Heights landmark faces demolition

The house was once a dignified example of Albuquerque’s expanding place in the world. Now she’s as ragged as a moth-eaten ball gown, and, sadly, may soon be laid to rest like too many of the city’s other architectural beauties.
