American Way’s Transformation!
When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do. – Walt Disney
Life’s like a movie. Write your own ending. Keep believing, keep pretending. – Jim Henson
Better to fight for something than to live for nothing. – George S. Patton
It is time for us to realize that we’re too great a nation to limit ourselves to small dreams. – Ronald Reagan
If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves. – Thomas Edison
Where liberty dwells, there is my country. – Ben Franklin
The cause of America is in a great measure the cause of all mankind, – Thomas Paine
The face lift of American Way is taking on a life of its own and I am very happy with the way it is shaping up! I really like living somewhere that is ever evolving.
Along with the three dimensional artwork there are seven quotes from seven prominent men who have helped shape the American way of life. As you walk along the promenade and look down, these quotes are now etched in granite markers embedded along American Way. Each one makes you pause and think and I believe that that is a good thing, especially in this day and age!
As with any change, there is the inconvenience of the construction. Please don’t let that keep you from coming over for a visit. There are three ways in to the heart of the Harbor – Waterfront Street, Fleet Street and St. George Boulevard. All three streets cross American Way. Waterfront has some one way traffic for about a block right now and quite possible by the time you are reading this, the traffic pattern will be restored to normal.
REMINDER: THERE ARE NO FIREWORK DISPLAYS IN THE HARBOR ON THE 4TH OF JULY!
