New paint

May 19, 2009

It seems as though there's been a lot of new paint in Astoria this year. Last May (or maybe April) new yellow lines and arrows were painted along the Riverfront Trolley tracks. Remodeling and new paint on the red building on the right is also fairly new. The whole building has been reconstructed in the last couple of years, although this end is still vacant. The white folding sign on the pavement is The Wheelhouse - one of Astoria's several comfortable and friendly coffee houses. The sidewalk and street are part of the River Walk, and the river is only a few paces away. I took the photo standing in the intersection of 14th Street and the River Walk.

You might tell them to spend a few days in Versailles and bring white paint. We desperately need it in some places where it's becoming dangerous...

I like ciel's comment: bring more paint and then send them even here!

Always good to see new paint and renovations. Such "newness" is important to the self-perception and vitality of any city!

It's nice when they sort of freshen things up. A fresh coat of paint does wonders.

Has a very European feel to it.
