Day 92

That's what you get when you multiply one of these intersecting street numbers by the other. As I learned from walking around with Moses Gates, this is the highest such product in the city. Thanks to Queens's confusing numbering system, there are actually three different intersections with this product (all within a few hundred yards of each other): 262nd Place and 149th Road, 262nd Street and 149th Road, and 262nd Street and 149th Avenue.

    There’s also a 69th Street parallel to 69th Place in Queens and both intersect 70th Avenue, which, fortunately, is far from where 70th Street is. I’m guessing there are more of these confusing corners.

    I learned it from Kevin Walsh. And 262nd street is new!
