MNCW - 108th Street Overpass
Posted July 26, 2015, by Ian Martin

Would anyone be opposed to me converting this entry to represent the entire stone section of the Park Avenue Viaduct, which runs from 102nd St. to 110 St.? There's an arch like this one at every block in between, and it seems sort of redundant to add them all as independent structures.
