Title: Streets where you are likely to find discarded items in Western NY
Post by: place-saint-henri on March 05, 2019, 09:11:08 PM
I did my High School Internship in 1998 with the Irondequoit Police Dept where they had me use GIS to map out all the streets in Western New York. At the time they were trying to cut down on the amount of Leftover Crack on Irondequoit streets for Irondequoit teens to discover.

The results of my finding were the following WNY roads were most likely to see increased  Traffic in 1999.

-Lyell Ave
-N. Clinton Ave
-Rte 104
-Fillmore Ave in Buffalo
-Electric Ave in Lackawanna, NY
-Rte 20 between Alden and Darien Center

What do you think of that road geeks?

I think I'm going to go down to Rte 104 for some Leftover Crack™!

The police department wanted young kids to find drugs for them?

Roads have a lot more cracks than crack.

This has to be one of the weirdest threads I've seen that's actually road-related.

The roads of Alanland are full of crack, except where they aren't.

Western NY has a lot of snow on the roads. Maybe he's confusing "snow" with actual snow.

I was surprised the OP wasn’t bandit when I first saw it.

Kentucky's been doing a lot of crack sealing lately, in anticipation of pavement preservation projects.  :-D

Same feeling I had except finding it in an "on-topic" forum.

Does KTC send someone out afterward to find the Leftover Crack™?

I know junkies aren't terribly fastidious, but do they really just leave their leftover crack lying around?

Drugs Are Really Expensive, so of course not.

I mean, Leftover Crack is capitalized in the original post, so I'm guessing Leftover is a particular brand of crack.

The Irondequoit Police Dept must be in cahoots with a competitor, then.

Leftover Crack is the name of a band. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left%C3%B6ver_Crack)

That article says Leftover Crack can be found on Avenue C in Manhattan, thereby making it relevant to this thread...

Actually, we're pretty good with storm management, so snow doesn't stick around on the roads for long.
Also, I understood this to have happened in the summer, not winter.

Western NY and Manhattan, believe it or not, are barely relevant to one another, if at all.

LOL at this whole thread, by the way, Especially the Random Capitalizations.

Just bulldoze SeaBreeze.  That'll get rid of all the crack.

The problem wasn’t Crack per se, we had the attitude at the time that if you want to do Crack in Irondequoit, thats your own business. Just dont get caught, give it to minors or operate a motor vehicle under its influence. But we absolutely did not want kids to start smoking it, hence why we were looking for Leftöver Crack.

Considering there aint no such thing as Leftover Crack, this Pilot Project went no where lol.

In 1999 I did my Senior Internship with the New York State Dept of Health’s Millinneum Asphyxiation awarness program. We were 4 teens and a 22 year old Social Work supervisor working out of a mobile health van that was driven around Rochester looking for Choking Victims, we also drove to schools to teach the heimlich.

Some roads we often visited:

East Avenue
Monroe Ave
Chili Ave
I-90
The Inner Loop
Frankland Drive in Irondequoit
Virginia Street in Buffalo
Etc.

As for Sea Breeze, I had my first Internet Kiss there in 1997! And no we weren’t on Crack.
