Underpass-tastic!

Posted By on Fri, Aug 21, 2009 at 2:58 PM

Here are some photos I took at the Thursday festivities christening the Fourth Avenue underpass. The area was swarming with people, cars, bicycles and, yes, a trolley or two. A motorist got stuck straddling the virgin tracks during rush hour, and the trolley tooted madly—it was awesome! A grumpy guy in the (already "tagged") elevator bitched about the pricetag, but he was no match for the happily honking horns, and the feeling that local history was being made. An activist challenged me to call Giffords about health care on the spot, so I did. A train went overhead, mobs passed by, and I felt like I actually lived in a city of one million people. It was nice...
