If you've ever had the chance to peruse my little tours of Elmira Downtown, you may recall a short piece regarding a possible renovation and upgrading of the walkway under the what we locals call the train trestle.
Recently the Star-Gazette--and the local television news, for that matter--have been running items to celebrate the acquisition of state and federal funding for the project.
I was surprised that nowhere in any of those pieces is there mention of the man (and his department) who did all the researching, visionary, not to mention legwork, for the project.
Business as usual at the local level.
Heh Heh--read the comments section in the Star-Gazette post for local reaction to the Promenade!

The corner of Main and Gray. Good place to start any tour in Elmira. Lady inside the Community Bookstore gots lots of info; what she doesn't have, her patrons do. Look for chatty pensioners and their pets. I began to wander about, looking for good photos.
