I decided to start walking daily to get fresh sunlight while awaiting my work year to start. As a typical millennial I couldn't help taking pictures of anything that caught my attention. Given my recent strong of posts regarding incorporation I couldn't help fixating on thoughts of what the county doesn't do well that a city might accomplish more efficiently and effectively. I invite you to spy some untypical views of my community, and my thoughts of them. On these two walks (Thursday and Friday) I went south so Skylake Plaza, and back.
On Monday I will instead walk east towards the single family neighborhood.
|I found this pump station between 191st and Miami Gardens Drive, well south of 19720 NE 18 Avenue.|
This circumstance immediately raises the question of why the county wants some pumps and not others.
|Many of these NO signs went up several years ago. The Yes campaign only recently got their act together and have a much prettier design. I will feature such an image when I find one.|
|The most recent development in my immediate area.|
|It looks as though we lost a gas station and gained another bank. I find gas in this area too expensive and did not frequent that station.|
|More NO signs in front of a condominium. I wonder if the boards of these respective places approved these signs.|
|I crossed the street to acquire this photo as it features the largest buildings in the Northeast. Buckley towers in the background has a twin out of view behind it. Both buildings have more than the 8 floors in the much newer Sky Lofts.|
|I presume they installed that pipe on the east side of 14th Avenue.|
|The ducks hang out here. I wish people wouldn't feed them. They don't need your food as they have evolved over millions of years to find their own food. Ducks crossing the street to eat food left in the grass regularly die from car collisions.|
|When I first moved to the area people did not park on the swale to the west side of 14th Avenue. I only found two cars this time, but likely many more after 6pm.|
Trash along the west side of 14th Ave., a small sampling.
|Lack of available parking in the condominium lots also lead to many cars left in the swale on the north side of the bridge on 14th Avenue.|
|Another pump station. Also not included in the county's demands for incorporation.|
|Open utility box.|
I took no more photos Friday as I saw all the same things. Thank you for sharing my walk!
