Is it sad that I got all giggly and excited over this and that the only thing that could make this day perfect is if my building manager drops off my protein powder sooner than later?

I'm the guy the streetcar ran over when I tried to go at an angle to the tracks in my fixie.

Sorry about all the blood on the streets and the moans you heard.

So, the city's broke, right? They're shutting parks and closing departments and stuff, right? But they still have seemingly infinite amounts of money for useless crap like this. I'm not talking about the streetcar, I'm talking about the cartoon of the streetcar.

A virtual ride past 47 nail salons, 32 sub shops, and 24 Thai joints.

The six-story-tall street car that flies in the air like the Delorean in BTTF2 to turn around is gonna be so bitchin'!

This thing is going to kill broadway. Unless all parallel traffic is banned. turning all of broadway into a streetcar line and expanding the sidewalks would be much better than this hybrid POS.

Bike lanes good.

If they don't go with 10-minute-or-better frequencies seven days a week and 19 hours a day, this will be greeted with a big, triumphant, collective "what was the point?"
