# Thread: Where are the blue and the green?

1. ## Where are the blue and the green?

Hi,

I am standing at the red spot.

1. Where is the blue building, and where is the green building taking reference of the road-crossing?
2. How can I get to the two buildings from where I am respectively? Suppose the North is on the top if necessary.

Thanks a lot!

Both the green and blue buildings are just south of the intersection.

To get to the blue building: walk south through the intersection and continue straight ahead to the blue building.
To get to the green building: walk south through the intersection, then turn right and cross the street, then turn left and walk straight ahead to the green building.

If I say "The blue building is across the intersection", then can I say "The green building is at the furthest corner of the intersection"? I am almost sure this doesn't make sense. But if I cannot find where the North is (sorry about this), how can I describe where the green building is in relation to where I am (the red spot) taking reference of the intersection? Thanks a lot!

The green building does not appear to be on the corner (hard to tell). If you don't know the compass directions, you could say the green building is across the street from where you are and past the intersection.

I think the original poster is looking for "catty-corner."

Or kitty-corner. Possibly, but that would work better for me if both locations were on the corner.

7. Thank you so much! That is what I was looking for. I'll say "The blue building is across the street/intersection from where we are. Whereas the green building is catty-corner from us." Thanks again for your help. Much appreciated.

They are too far from the corners to be catty/kitty corner (BE diagonally opposite).

Yeah, but it's a better explanation than any other. Catty-corner and a little ways down.

Mike's "If you don't know the compass directions, you could say the green building is across the street from where you are and past the intersection" seems clear enough to me.
