Different directional orientations of laydowns of bricks are abutting one another here.

A huge dumpster enclosure for one puny dumpster, meantime over there there's another dumpster and it ain't even inside the enclosure.

This being Atlantic City, nobody cares about the mismanagement of the space occupied by the dumpsters and the dumpster enclosure. Land areas are not precious around here right now.

I think maybe the double yellow line and the dashed white line were the wrong design choices for communicating the multidirectionality of the center lane? Oh well, nobody cares, this being Schenectady.

Its humps.
To look at the humps I'd have guessed the bridge is from the late 1950s, but in fact it's from the early 1960s.

The humps are in the U.S. but I am in Canada.
