Laneway House in the 'hood!

A few months ago, I happened to spot a truck from 'Lanefab' hanging out in my neighbourhood. This piqued my interest, since I posted on this company and their sweet, modern laneway housing designs as part of a general post about laneway housing last summer.

Dunsmuir Viaduct Next up for a Bike Lane!

The big news early this week is that the Dunsmuir Viaduct will likely be the next Vancouver crossing to receive a dedicated, separated bike lane. This will provide easy, level access to the downtown core from the Union / Adanac bike lane, and connect East Vancouver directly to the Dunsmuir bike lane downtown.

East Van Saints.. New Installation

I was riding down 2nd / 6th / Great Northern Way (or should I say 'up').. when I couldn't help but notice this new installation. I have to say I really like it, it's the first very public display of this symbol that I have seen. I remember it as a gang sign for the "East Van Saints", though I don't even think they were still around when I was a teenager. By then, the scrawled or painted sign had probably already become a symbol for the defiant pride people who wrote it felt about their part of the city.
