It's a 10 minute walk to the Waterfront Boardwalk...

It’s nice to know that my city is capable, on occasion, of living up to its inspired city propoganda. Witness this sign, spotted on the way to work this morning:

It's a 10 minute walk to the Waterfront Boardwalk

It’s such a great initiative: it encourages people to walk by defeating the perception by all Islanders (myself included) that to go more than a few blocks will take an hour to walk so you’d better take the car. Bravo, city, bravo.

(The QR code, if you scan it with a mobile device, leads to a Google Map of the route from the sign to the destination).
