just over 2 weeks ago while walking down 57th street i noticed a new avenue. yes, a new avenue smack in the heart of midtown. i took a few photos and continued on my journey cross town wondering what that was all about.
As if stop-and-go driving in Midtown weren’t bad enough . . .
Stop signs were permanently installed in the middle of some of the city’s most traffic-clogged crosstown streets yesterday in order to accommodate new pedestrian walkways — and drivers are fuming.
The new quarter-mile walkway comes complete with new street signs that say “6 1/2 Ave.”
According to the DOT, more than 1,200 people crossed in the middle of the street each hour, darting between parked cars and moving vehicles to reach businesses and restaurants — a tragedy waiting to happen. full story
just keeping you “posted”. . . . (get it??) sometimes i crack myself up. 😉
