    Awesome! However #31 is right next to what is now the Jordan Parking garage, facing south towards Read residence hall.

      It is now listed as #29 “Leaving on the Bike.” Yes, the building in the background is the Leo Dowling International Center at 111 S. Jordan Avenue. The intersection used to have a circle, but was recently re-worked.
