  2. Hmm…

    The cat silhouette looks familiar. The person responsible left a trio of them on the wooden fence on the northeast corner of State and Hoyt Streets. My cat would have given two thumbs up; unfortunately, his aren’t opposable. So, a little tail rattling and a chirp will suffice.

    How many folks are aware that “B62” was the original line number for the trackless trolley/electric coaches before the B61 took over the route? The B62 would run over the old Vernon Avenue Bridge (before the Pulaski Bridge was opened in 1954) to Manhattan Avenue, then down to High Street. The B61 used to terminate at the foot of the Pulaski Bridge, on Jackson Avenue. It conveniently parked in front of the “Brothers Three” bar and grill, formerly located where the deli is at present. The B61 ran to Erie Basin (Van Dyke/Richards Sts.).

Tell me what you're thinking...
