Clearwater, Florida: Virgin Mary in the Glass (Gone)
- Clearwater, FL- US Highway 19 just north of Drew street on the east side. Across from the Target. From Tampa, take the Courtney Campbell Causeway (60) till it turns into Gulf-to-Bay. Make a right on US 19. It's just passed the stop light on your right (be careful, you have to merge one lane over to continue straight).
- Not much to see since it was vandalized.
