Intro Lesson: Avenue A.
Did you know that Avenue A runs all the way up to the Upper East Side? Yes, really. It’s just called Sutton Place, York Ave, and Pleasant Ave. (These names sound “prettier” than Avenue A, and therefore is good for real estate!) Therefore, today’s lesson was “AKA AVE A”.
Word of the Day: cul-de-sac
(Fr cul = bottom + de = of (the) + sac = bag)
A.K.A. Avenue A: What an exciting day !! The crew headed out to check out the sites at Avenue A. We headed south on the East River path with two of Cyclopedia’s best riders , Jasmine aka “No Brakes Included” and Destinee aka “2 Real on 2 Wheels”. On our way , we went passed Gracie’s Mansion, spotted Roosevelt Island, seen more cormorants, and a couple of dog parks. Once we came out of the East River path, we rode towards the dead ends along Avenue A. Here, we met up with a warthog on the 57th Street cul-de-sac. “No Brakes Included” and 2 Real on 2 Wheels” took some pretty cool pictures with him!! After that, we went to a couple more cul- de-sacs and took pictures of a green house, Pepsi sign in Queens, and a secret driveway. Once we were done, he headed back to the Cyclopedia headquarters to upload our pictures, blog, and discuss our trip. As Cappy’s cousin Ice Cube would say ” Today was a good day”.
