It's at the corner of Downtown, not in the middle of it ..... plus, I and many others who actually make use of it, don't mind. Not all places were conceved with horse pulled carts in mind, you know

Considering the time of night that picture was taken, I wouldn't be surprised ...... plus, everyone with a gasp of photography, knows that long exposure shots tend to "cloak" moving objects

Actually you can see a few of those twin lines if you look at the picture for more than a split second (like the guy saying there are no cars probably did.)

Yeah, my post was more of an addition to your response to CrazyDave than a negative response to you.
