This is what happens when you pour a concrete sidewalk during the Fall season...

The way development is going in Queens, this may be the only place where leaves will be seen.

I kind of like the leaf imprints.

there's a sidewalk by me that has cat prints in it. Always get a kick of looking at it.

What a stupid thing to be crappy about. Be thankful you have a sidewalk!

The leaf imprints are far more distinctive than the shoddy, lackluster cement sidewalks that crack in no time. At least the leaves introduce detail to the sidewalks. Years back, the city cared more by designing (longlasting) sidewalks with colored stones and pebbles. Apply the age test to both types of sidewalks and compare the differences. Mighty!

There are several sections of slate sidewalk around my place. When I used to go rollerblading when I was younger, it felt like I was floating while going over them.

They're like leaf fossils.

Neat leaf fossils. Better look for squirrels and chipmunks in there too. Just sayin. Why don't we ever find coins or bills in that stuff?! ~
P.S. regarding the new architec- ture going up in NY, most of us out of state folks, come to NY in hopes of seeing the old NY, China town, Little Italy, etc. as it has been. We can see new, cold, crappy architecture anywhere. NYC architects, get behind your historicals. I liked that suggestion of just adding another
floor to the little red building.
