AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently went for a road trip along historic Route 66 in Arizona. In this gallery, you’ll see photos from Winslow, Arizona. It opened in 1999, commemorating the song “Take It Easy” which was written by Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey and most famously recorded by The Eagles. The song includes the verse “Well, I’m a-standin’ on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and such a fine sight to see. It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me.” The park contains a two-story mural by John Pugh, and a bronze statue by Ron Adamson of a life-sized man who is standing on a corner with a guitar by his side. The park is surrounded by a wall of bricks, with windows to peer into; each brick has a donor’s name on it, and a story by each of the donors describing their fondness for Winslow, Arizona.
Visit Standin’ on a Corner Park at Kinsley & E. 2nd St. in Winslow, AZ 86047. Open 24 hours year round. For more info, go to https://standinonthecorner.org/
