Flatbush Avenue: Remixed

It’s loud and smells bad when they repave your road in the wee hours, but that’s the price of progress – or maybe just maintenance.

The cyclist in me did wonder whether the guys painting stripes would add a bike lane…if I slipped them a twenty.

I Zipcar pretty regularly, but budget considerations usually limit me to the cheaper Zips like the Martix, 3, and Rabbit.

But every now and then I’ll splurge and treat myself to a short hop in a Mini. These cars are FUN and ride like the first and only car I’ve ever owned, the immortal Honda CRX si.
