Concourse Parkway? Sounds elite. Where the Concourse and Mosholu intersect?

The master plan for the Grand Concourse?
I'd like to see the entire Concourse given the same treatment as the stretch from 161 to 166...

By the way, nice shot and great catch!

Thanx. The Novas are rare on the G.C. Truth be known this bus was spotted minutes later discharging passengers slightly south of this locale. Sign shut off; lights out!
BTW they should call it "Grand Blvd and Concourse" as in the master plan.

The many errors when it comes to destination signs, but the Concourse is similar to a Parkway, other than that it just doesn't make sense

Lol...they should rename it, seeing that there's nothing so "Grand" about the Grand Concourse. Lmao

That's not true at all. It is a very grand road with notable architecture and an up and coming community.

Good post.
Also, I highly recommend checking out Forgotten NY's two-part exposition on the Concourse.

Thanks for reminding me about FNY, I haven't been to that site in months.

No prob. Incidentally, prior to a few months ago I haven't visited in a while myself; was pleasantly surprised to see such an exhaustive, well-done piece on the Grand Concourse and its history.
