In this essay, I would like you to describe a physical location (i.e., a place) that you have strong feelings about—whether those feelings are positive (i.e., it is a place you like) or negative (i.e., it is a place you dislike intensely).
When you write, be sure to arrange the descriptive details of your scene in an effective, efficient order that best represents the location in question. Though visual details will probably be the aspect that you emphasize the most, take care not to short the other elements of perception (sounds, smells, etc.) since they will lend depth to your description and keep it from becoming merely a snapshot.
In addition to describing the scene, I would like you also to tell the story behind this location’s significance—that is, relate for the reader the sequence of events that occurred there that make it a memorable location to you.
