    It's faded a lot in about two weeks. The painting in the section in front of Phase 2 doesn't have this problem. They probably used a different material for the pavement.

    The tour buses being eliminated would be the most welcome part of this for me, and in my opinion they need to be eliminated if one lane is allotted to bikes and pedestrians because there are sections...

    I thought that the name was due to the fact that citizens paid for part of the cost of the bridge directly. I recall donating some piddling amount, probably to the W&OD, at the time.

    I grew up in Whitestone and Beechhurst. As you know, the schools were usually called by their numbers, not their names. I went to kindergarten in PS 79Q. We moved late in that school year from...

    Having ridden my bike across the old bridge going to work at the Naval Research Laboratory for over 30 years before I retired, I am almost sad that I have little reason to go across it now. I did try...

    Within the last week or 10 days, the speed limit on the entire Hains Point hamster course has been lowered to 15 MPH, even the part on Buckeye Drive. The signs are quite small, and many car drivers...

    I was riding westward on the W&OD early this morning. Soon after I crossed the new bridge, I came to a barrier at Little Falls Street with no indication of a detour. How is one supposed to continue...

    So that is why the police officers told me that there was "an incident" when I asked why part of the loop was closed when I went there at the end of a long ride.

    I remember that they created a lot of noise, and in a few places there were a lot of dead ones on the ground, but I don't recall any falling on me.

    I got an email a while ago and registered. You pick a time slot (I think a half-hour) when you will show up. I am pretty sure they limit how many in each slot.

    It's off topic, but how is one supposed to make a left turn from a protected bike line on the right? I usually leave the PBL earlier and get to the left, but this requires me to know the PBL well....
