On the old TV show, Superman was "faster than a speeding bullet." Today in Ithaca, you can be faster than cars.
Clinton Street closed today, for bridge repair, from Cayuga St. to Danby Road. It will be closed a while.
Meanwhile, Green Street is under repair, with only one lane open.
You could walk backward and be faster than the car traffic on Green, Clinton, or South Cayuga.
If you come to Ithaca from out of town, and are heading downtown, your fastest option would be to park as soon as you hit Clinton or Green, and start ankling it.
Ithaca might be a lousy place to drive, but it is a great place to burn calories.
