Thread: Another one into the fray II

  1. #1
    Hi everyone..another one into the fray here my name is Valentin. I grew up in New York City, namely The Bronx, near The Grand Concourse which is a beautiful blvd. also grew up in Newburgh, NY on the western bank of the Hudson River..Newburgh, a former industrial town that has since joined the rust belt of many Hudson River cities. picked up a Geography degree at Salem State College outside of Boston. spent some time in the private and public sector there after for a few years before going to back to school. I am currently finishing up my Masters degree in Urban Planning at the U. of Louisville in KY. I came down here inititally to learn about the city's efforts to plan a light rail line.

    I look foward to hearing from others on the boards...cheers, Valentin

    thanks for the warm welcome everyone!!!!! appreciate it.

    To Mud Princess: whoa, yeah, I see what you said about the Grand Concourse..I'm glad it was brought up because I love that parkway!!! its the blvd. where you almost have to cross twice. there are a few subway lines underneath. I have always wondered how the streetscape would have looked with a trolley or light rail running along the center of it...?? I love those gorgeous building that are on the 'Conc, too!!!!
