While you might not see them immediately you’d be able to make out their forms if you stared long enough and your eyes adjusted to the dark. That would be some trick at 60 miles per hour.

I knew where they were yet what I saw was barely visible as it blended into the dark Tuesday night sky. For a few minutes I saw the necklace lighting and the super crane illuminated like what might be a giant sea monster. I talked about this before: the Rockland side offers a pretty night view of the project for those few seconds as you near the approach span heading east.

A good-sized crowd attended the meeting to hear consultants outline possibilities for redeveloping South Nyack. They talked about Exit 10, the village’s geography and topography and offered suggestions for connecting the dissected halves and finding ways to generate revenue.

My street is off the Bronx River Parkway, and  on Bicycle Sundays it and the area become a parking lot. The term may be old; the implications are not. Forget that people park and walk to the train station at the other end of the street daily to avoid parking fees. So I get it. One big step for the village was getting the shared use path terminus moved onto Thruway property.

As one consultant said, the next steps are to identify alternatives for Exit 10, come up with urban designs to accommodate the economic development areas and then find ways to implement the ideas.

I’d like to know what you think.
