The old 35th Ave would look exactly the same if the same idiot delivery driver double parked on the other side of the street from an already double parked vehicle.

Does anybody remember my grandfather's deli on 81st Street and Roosevelt Avenue. He bought in the early 1950s and sold it in the 1980s. It was painted red outside and the Democrat Club was on the 2nd floor. My grandfather's name was Nick, his brother was Gus and the third person I remember working there was Bill.  He had about 10 of the the old delivery type bicycles and on Saturday's there was always a long line waiting for cold cuts. The deli had a wooden floor and there was always sawdust on it to keep it clean.

Wouldn't it be crazy if the 34th ave Open Streets was found to be a Super Spreader

Not crazy...

34th Ave was actually "opened" during the lockdown last year, when most people were still supposed to be staying at home as much as possible. Instead everyone was encouraging to go walk on the same street. Made no sense. The street opened on May 15th but NYC only began reopening (Phase 1) on June 8.

For those pushing the 34th Avenue agenda, it seems it's all or nothing.  I have questioned the need to have the open streets every day of the year.  I enjoy using 34th avenue to bike, walk to farmer's market on Sundays--but often, even in nice weather it is not always that crowded and there is plenty of room to walk the dog, push a stroller, etc. on the sidewalk.  The bike lane works fine, as long as cars and people don't stand in the lane. Traffic and congestion on 35th Avenue is worst during the weekday afternoon rush hour, and as schools open and more people start commuting will be a problem in the morning rush as well.  Many cities close streets on weekends, perhaps a real study needs to be done to look at the hours to keep the street open with consideration for the impact to traffic on other streets in the neighborhood.

Shoppe there today. Some produces spill out onto the street, wider aisles than other locations and getting more stocked up now. Will be competition with nearby grocery stores.

 Happy to see a number of restaurants doing well this week. Northern Blvd. is pretty busy and it feels like we just might be getting through this awful disease. God bless.

We used and refreshed throughout the day to book our appointment. I’ve also heard of people who follow their Twitter and set their phones to get alerts about vaccine drops. Good Luck!!
