1986 Alp D'Huez



That day in 1986 was to go down in history.

We don’t know what is going to happen on Wednesday when the Tour again faces the three massive climbs culminating in Alp D’Huez but yesterday’s race put six riders inside one minute of each other and the attacks were furious.
Tomorrow is a serious climb but a down hill finish Wednesday ends going up on the penultimate classic climb.
Enjoy the video and tune in on Wednesday to history made anew.

Double Edged Sword


Speaking of gentrification you might want to read Double Edge to Brooklyn’s Success
in the NYTimes.
It tells how the Brooklyn Brewery, Amy’s Cookies and Bagels by Bell are hard pressed to find space to expand in Brooklyn because real estate is expensive and being eaten up by residential conversions. Because of gentrification thier businesses are doing better and they need to expand and hire more people (i.e. gentrification is "good") but at the same time the success has made it harder to find space.
It would be a drag if “Brooklyn Brewery” had to make their (our?) beer in Long Island.
