Ol' Blue Eyes was definitely a trend-setter with this example of Desert Modernism: Twin Palms. Originally wanting a Georgian mansion in the desert, the architectural firm of E. Stewart Williams convinced Frank to go with something a bit more location appropriate. The result is a late 40's construction of low clean angles, wide windows, and desert views.
Twin Palms can be your vacation home for the low price of $2,600 a night. Martinis not included.

It might not be the corner, but Chicago native Common kicks a verse or two on the corner of S Evans and E 79th in the video for 'The Corner' off his 2005 album Be.

Established in 1979 and re-organized as a stand-alone museum in 1999, the Delta Blues Museum is a place "where visitors find meaning, value, and perspective by exploring the history and heritage of the unique American musical art form of the blues."
Notably, the museum houses the shack where Muddy Waters spent his youth on the Stovall Plantation.
The museum has been located in a former railroad depot since 1999. The building, constructed circa 1918, served as the passenger rail depot of the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad.
Across the street is Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero blues club.
Mirador de la Flor ("Lookout of the Flower") is a monument in Corpus Christi, Texas that was unveiled in 1997 to honor Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, the Tejano singer who was murdered by her assistant and head of her fan club Yolanda Saldívar, two years earlier at the age of 23.
