As some of you may know, I have worked in the vicinity of McKinley Hill for the more than 5 years or so. Thus, I have been pretty much a witness to how this township developed from a somewhat barren environment into what it is today. And for those past 5+ years, the sight that has always intrigued was the construction of what was supposed to be its prime attraction, a replica of the Grand Canal of Venice.
It just bums me that I learned that after so many years, McKinley Hill’s own version of the Grand Canal finally opened…and I’m no longer working at the area. Considering the distance coming from my residence in the east, plus the other things I’ve been busy with, I haven’t had the time to check out the place as hordes of selfies being taken in the area made it possibly the new selfie capital in the metro. But finally, I managed to see what the hype is all about.
