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).

This has been in the works for a while and we’ve run up against some obstacles along the way, so I’m really glad to see it happening.

I spotted one on Kent and Prince directing people to Victoria Row. These signs are a great way to encourage tourists to leave their hotel on foot and talk a walk around our downtown. It’s smaller projects like this that go a very long way.
