A plaza called Dealey: The birthplace of the JFK mystery that will never die
Joel AchenbachDALLAS — Dealey Plaza is a depression. It’s a shallow basin on the western edge of downtown, framed by concrete structures called pergolas and peristyles that were built by the Works Progress Administration. Designed as a gateway to the city, the plaza is more of an ode to the automobile, because the broad lawn is sliced by three streets: Elm, Main and Commerce. They slope from east to west and converge beneath a rail line in what is known as the triple underpass.
That’s where President and Mrs. Kennedy were headed, on Elm, when the ghastly thing happened.
