Make the Kingston Corridor a complete street in 2010 ok, 2011! ok already! ¬†2012! totally a new day for Kingston! OK, then how about a shuttle bus? 2013? ūüôā 2014? 2015, 2016, 2017?
Consider just the changes on that corridor, the Suny Campus, the Rail Trail, UPAC park, Paving of Clinton Avenue into Uptown (and all the uptown business) and the Smorgasbord and the Waterfront and Build a better Broadway and the coming traffic circle and the lack of public transportation between an historical city and the outlying malls:  all of the traffic and no public transportation of any consequence.


I will do as directed and “type to choose a block”
I don’t know what this is. Is this “MY” digital legacy? It shows the Kingston Corridor above. Looks like I have full text formatting and flow and I think I can put images in there
So I can take images from at least the Kingston Corridor.

Editorial: Kingston Corridor as the face of our village…

A loose confederacy of good will and good wishes, polite discourse with room for animated forms but excluding rude, mean, destructive. ¬†Where people identify themselves as part of the village, and meet with visitors and guests and residents coming from the space of “village”. ¬†Villagers are versed in the lore and features and government and education, public spaces of the city, hands on when they can be, publicly grateful for the contributions of others, proud of their own when they get the chance and find the time.

It’s definitely a place for a villager to be seen: their presence always makes a place look nice. ¬†When they say “It takes a village” that says a whole lot about just what a village is.
