The other day I noted a century-old building caught fire. The aftermath isn’t pretty – but if the owners are dedicated to keeping the historic structure in place, this doesn’t appear to be a total goner. I’ve seen worse (the St. Nicholas at nearby NW 8 and Broadway). Gotta wonder what’s next with this….
I wrote about some questionable mid-block pedestrian crossing signs placed along Broadway at NW 8. They vanished today, and I’m hearing conflicting reports as to who actually put them out.
Say goodbye to the “highway.” Spanning up to seven lanes wide, the one-way Hudson Avenue has been seen as a poster child for bad downtown street design – a virtual killing field for pedestrians (if I recall correctly, accidents include an attorney killed while crossing the street a few years ago). The street is being torn up as part of the next phase of Project 180.
