Someone Has An Even Better Idea!

Remember (it was only yesterday) when I mentioned Robert Moses had wanted to build a below-grade highway right through where Washington Square park stands?  And I posted this picture as an example of what it would have looked like?

Well, I can't guarantee it, but I'm pretty sure that's a stretch of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway -- a horrible road that did get built.

Well, since the damned thing is already there, it appears that someone had a great idea about how to transform it into something a whole lot nicer.  If anybody cares, I heartily endorse this concept.  So, without further ado, here's Jason N. Gibbs' vision

And while you're on Jason's site, have a look around; there's some cool stuff there.
