Back in the days on the boulevard of Linden, A Tribe Called Quest used to kick routines and the presence was fitting. It was Q-Tip, the abstract, and Phife Dawg, the 5-footer, who died Tuesday from complications resulting from diabetes. Now thousands of fans have signed a petition to make Phife’s legacy on that boulevard permanent.
Perhaps one of the best known sites of Berlin is Brandenburg Gate. This 18th-century neoclassical triumphal arch was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace. The gate, along with the avenue to the west, is one of the large public areas in Berlin where over a million people can gather to watch shows, major sport events shown on huge screens, or see the fireworks at midnight on New Year’s Eve. When visiting don’t forget to journey just beyond the gate to the boulevard of linden trees, which was the original pathway to the palace of the Prussian Monarchs.
