Just south of downtown, there’s aÂ gymnasium that dates from the year 1900 called the Turnverin:
It stands out in an odd section of Prospect Street. Notice the signs to the left of the building: that’s Interstate 70.
Here’s another view of the Turnverin:
It’s the same angle of the old building, but the streetview is from another road that acts just like an Interstate. Morris Street was converted into a mini-freeway sometime between 1956 and 1962. Here’s the aerial view of the street from 1956:
And here’s 1962:
Notice that this image was taken before Interstate 70 was brought into the neighborhood. Yet the southern configuration still exists. It’s confusing to drive, and basically a giant void in the neighborhood. It generates no property taxes, and pushes people further away from downtown.
Here’s my plan to recreate these streets. I didn’t change too much from the original configuration, except I included a roundabout where the streets meet up with Madison Avenue:
The red lines on the map indicate where the streets can go, and the orange lines represent alleys. I labeled where the houses could go.
Please let me know in the comments if you have other ideas for these streets.
