Your Answers: Tells us about a landmark in your neighborhood.

Storms have relentlessly ravaged communities in parts of California. One community is devastated because the storm knocked down a tree hundreds of years old.

For our write-to-us this week, we want you to: Tell us about a landmark in your neighborhood.

Think about what object or feature is unique to where you live. it could be a building, sculpture, or a tree like the story we just saw. And extra points if you snap a photo too!


Dear NewsDepth,
A landmark in my neighborhood is the Avon Lake Public Library. Which is where you can go and check out books, take fun classes and play in Discovery Works. Discovery Works is this play area where kids can be kids.

The unique sculptures in my town, Amherst, are the circular sandstone sculptures that you can see around many parts of the town; they are even in my own yard. They are very large circles of sandstone. My town is known as the sandstone center of the world because early buildings and circular grindstones used to sharpen tools were made out of the sandstone quarried in Amherst.

Chère NewsDepth la tour eiffel est très belle et j'habite tout près. La vue est superbe au sommet. Bientôt, mes amis et moi allons jouer à kick the can!

Dear NewsDepth the Eiffel Tower is very beautiful and I live very close. The view is superb at the top. Soon my friends and I will be playing kick the can!

Dear Newsdepth,
A landmark in my neighborhood is my school. We get the highest scores on the AIR tests. Last school year we were ranked second in the state, and we are champions in almost every sport. This school year we aim to be first in the state of Ohio. We were on Newsdepth's A+ Award last year for our kindness program. There are so many newsworthy things about our school. This is why we are an important landmark in our community.

Dear Newsdepth,
There is a tree behind my house that when the squirrels receive their peanuts, they climb up that specific tree. To me, I feel like the squirrels think it's a famous landmark and it is really cute to me.
