Oh, he's one of those.

Does anyone know where on Spring street the woman was mugged?

Ken Goewy! What an insane guy!

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
