You didn't actually ask, but...

washington ave ext map

This Washington Ave, it extends.

Believe it or not, there are some people who don't visit AOA via an autocomplete url, feed reader, share, irresistible urge, or unconscious habit. (Yes, shocking, we know.) Many of these people come in looking for something via Google -- and sometimes we can't help but take notice of what they're looking for.

Well, as you know, we like to help. So even though you didn't actually ask, here's the (an) answer...


Twenty-two, according to the Fuccillo Auto Group website:
+ 3 in Adams, New York
+ 2 in Watertown, New York
+ 4 in Grand Island, New York (near Niagara Falls)
+ 1 in West Seneca Falls, New York
+ 1 in East Syracuse, New York
+ 2 in West Rochester, New York
+ 1 in Liverpool, New York (near Syracuse)
+ 1 in Schenectady, New York
+ 1 in Niskayuna, New York
+ 1 in East Greenbush, New York
+ 1 in Amsterdam, New York
+ 3 in Nelliston, New York (new Canajoharie)
+ 1 in Cape Coral, Florida (near Fort Myers)

It is probably safe to assume that all of them are HUGE.

where does washington ave ext begin

Washington Ave Extension starts at Fuller Road and ends at Route 155 (New Karner Rd). Or, to put it another way, it stretches from from the almost-completed florcle to New Karner Rd.

Bonus bit: that road across 155 from Washington Ave Extension is... Madison Ave Extension. Yep, as in the one that runs through Albany. Madison Ave was previously called Lydius Street. And if you look at a map, you can see that current path of Madison Ave lines up with this vestigial street (kind of like an appendix). On satellite, you can also see its old trace through the Pine Bush -- and on the other side is E. Lydius Street in Guilderland.

sofas at big lots? are they good?

We can't speak from experience, but we're guessing they're of "bound for the free section of Craigslist" quality.

why is rpi so f****** expensive

This is an interesting question, if perhaps impolitely expressed. The estimated total cost for RPI undergraduates for 2012-2013 is $59,470. That is expensive, pretty much no matter how you modify the word. So, a few possible reasons:

+ It's a highly ranked private school, and those aren't cheap.

+ Its graduates tend to make a lot of money, so there's a high "return on investment."

+ Because it can be. Top schools -- heck, even not so great schools -- have significant pricing power. College tuition has more than doubled over the last two decades (yep, adjusting for inflation). And people keep paying. Because as hard as the job market can be for people with a college degree, it's brutal without one.

how is walmart selling wine in ny

It's not. That wine-like substance in Walmart is a "wine product." This analogy may help:

wine product : wine :: cheese food : cheese

I always love these! Thanks for ending my week with a laugh!

laughed out loud. thanks.

nice to see the snippet from OpenStreetMap, although you are in theory supposed to include some boilerplate credit language when you do that. -- an OpenStreetMap contributor

Greg: You're right. I was sloppy about it. Thank you for pointing that out. It's fixed.

Yesterday evening big sis,and i drove from Washington Ave to cut through Fuller Road to Wolf. Lots of luck with that, AGAIN! We got on the ROAD TO NOWHERE AGAIN!
There are NO SIGNS. Got to CRossgates Commons and drove onto Washington Ave AGAIN!
Then from Central to Wolf.
Who ever designed these cockamamie roundabouts should be put in the looney bin! 'Cause that's where we almost ended up last night. Waste of gas,and time for us!

@greg that's fine. we don't want to pick a fight or anything, we just want people who know who OSM is. by the way, the map of the "florcle" in OSM has changed again this evening, and will probably change more by tuesday.

Washington Avenue definitely needs more than one lane in each direction, but that doesn't mean it can't be redesigned. They can reduce the size of the lanes, add a median, and add a protected bike lane where the shoulder of the road now lies. I agree, however, that the entire Harriman loop would have to be redesigned and that includes those over-passes, so this would be an extremely expensive undertaking if they want to do it right. But there could be significant development on the land that is now wasted by asphalt that could offset that cost and bulk up the tax base for the city.
