The First Official Video of the Silver Horse on Marconi Avenue & Eastern Avenue in Sacramento

I think I may have produced the first official video of the new silver horse on Marconi Avenue & Eastern Avenue in Sacramento. Okay, this is not my biggest achievement in life and there will be no awards, but I definitely thought it would be fun and creative to put something together. As I mentioned in a previous post, while driving around between appraisal inspections, I stopped by the new Rite Aid shopping center on the aforementioned corner and snapped some photos. Today when I passed by this gleaming statue again, I couldn’t help but grab some more images and put them online.

I am intrigued by landmarks, architecture, neighborhood design (porches especially) and how things like this make up the feel for a neighborhood. Moreover, my career as a real estate appraiser helps me to continually analyze the appearance of neighborhoods and properties.

A Silver Horse: An Instant Landmark in Sacramento (95821 Zip Code)

While driving in the field this morning I snapped a photo of a silver horse statue in the brand new Rite Aid center on the corner of Marconi Avenue and Eastern Avenue in the 95821 zip code of Sacramento. This newly constructed shopping center is located just West of Carmichael and the Rite Aid store has been open for less than two weeks.

What do you think of the horse? It’s gleaming and it’s not hard to miss, is it? Do you like it? Do you hate it? Does it add to the appeal of the retail center? Do you think it fits in with the neighborhood? Comment above if you’d like.

This horse has been dubbed by my three year old boy as “Silver” (sounds appropriate I suppose). It is certainly a landmark for the intersection now because passersby will be drawn to look at it. For reference, Wikipedia says the following of the word “landmark”: In modern usage, a landmark includes anything that is easily recognizable, such as a monument, building, or other structure

On another note, this store is located in Sacramento, but the Rite Aid website currently says “Carmichael“. Why do you think  Rite Aid has listed their store location as Carmichael? Is this similar to the 24 Hour Fitness in Rancho Cordova on Sunrise Blvd (West side of street = clearly in Rancho Cordova) saying they are located in “Gold River” when they are certainly located in Rancho Cordova?
