Washington Heights, 170th Street Between Broadway and St. Nicholas Avenue

It's not that I'm a fan of McDonald's; I just like the way it's grabbed the entire tiny block here. Yes, that is a block. It's where Broadway veers off to the west and exchanges streets with St. Nicholas Avenue, which continues where Broadway would have if it hadn't veered off. Check your maps.

This was yesterday, Sunday morning. I looked over my map and decided to clear up some raggedy edges so I took the train to 168th, walked up Broadway a couple of blocks, then came back and walked up St. Nicholas to 182nd Street, then across to Broadway and back down to the A train at 175th. This was to fill in little patches on my map. You just cannot walk these streets efficiently, although you could probably do it more efficiently than I do.
