Day 57

Conduit Avenue

February 25th, 2012

Built on the right-of-way of a former aqueduct (hence the name), this road has an exceedingly wide median. Here in Queens, just across the border from Brooklyn, there appears to be a park of some sort taking shape.

UPDATE: It's not a park; it's a bioretention facility with "the capacity to divert at least 200,000 gallons of stormwater that would otherwise flow into the combined sewer system–roughly 90% of the stormwater that accumulates within the drainage area during a moderate storm."
