All the grand boulevards…

All the grand boulevards in this part of town are shaped like this one – with the corners cut off creating a giant octagon (hey Kaitlin! It’s an Octagon!)…

I should mention that all these corners are controlled by signals. Pedestrians pay attention to the signals to the extent that ‘green’ means that your side has the right-of-way and ‘red’ means the other side does. So if it’s red to you and no car is coming, you can go.

People aren’t dodging in and out of traffic like NYNY though. Nor are they waiting-waiting watching grass grow like in Germany.
