An aerial view of old cars secured along a bank of the Cuyahoga River to prevent erosion at Jaite North of Peninsula, Ohio, near Cleveland, seen in September of 1975. The river passes through private property at this point. The river and valley are part of the newly created Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area, a 20-mile stretch of largely undeveloped land between the metropolitan districts of Cleveland and Akron.

^ It's crazy because you think that stuff would just wash away with floods and all the gaps in between would just allow erosion to continue its course.I should point out that the trip was bearable becuase Metra-Rail allows alcohol on their trains (so as long as you are well behaved). A few other groups on our rail car were mixing drinks as well, and we had ourselves a little party with quiet music and invited other passengers to partake. It was fun and great conversation. Something you'd never be able to by car.

I can't help it if she saw that my camera was positioned out at the sidewalk. I conducted an experiment just shooting people as they walked by. Honestly I think the subject was reacting to someone outside.

people always askhow do they take care of those little greenstreets patches of greenery?here's howi see parks people in there pruning at times,but more often its neighborhood greenthumb folks.GreenstreetsWhat are Greenstreets?Greenstreets are planting beds located in areas of unused roadbed, planted with trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers. The most common configurations include medians, traffic triangles, and curbside bumpouts or neckdowns. Designed and maintained by the Parks Department, Greenstreets provide numerous aesthetic and environmental benefits, such as beautifying the neighborhood, reducing stormwater runoff and air pollution, calming traffic, and providing corridors for migratory birds and other wildlife.
