An App that Truly Brings Joy

This is honestly one of the best apps I have ever downloaded, for the sheer joy of using it. I have lived in the city for 6 years and it has brought a new layer of interest to my life. I can pull it out wherever I am and find a whole history, and can plan walks around learning something new. The background on most sites is thoughtful and detailed, and who doesn't like to know that Taft used to go to church every Sunday a few blocks away from your home! I would recommend to people just visiting, or long-time locals because everyone will find a place on it.
