sumptuously
While my zip code places me within the geographical section of this town, this is the nice part of the woods... difference in house prices from a few blocks over can be in the half million dollars...

Wow, that's quite significant. This is something I remember from my trips to the USA as well: you could have streets with derelict houses practically right next to streets with quite nice (often gentrified) houses. Nice image, actually!

FYI:The assignment of ZIP code numbers is a bit complicated in part because the system and ideas about what it should be have evolved, However here are a few notes of interest.

1) The lowest ZIP code number in the 50 states is 00501, Holtsville, NY, but it is strictly for the IRS facility there, not for the rest of the town.
2) Other than that unique code, the lowest ZIP in the country is Agawam MA, at 01001, a particularly appealing number.
3) The last three digits of a ZIP code generally follow the alphabetic sequence of post-office names. So after Agawam at 01001 comes Amherst MA at 01002, etc.
4) BUT, sometimes within a district or region that is designated by the first two digits of a ZIP code, the largest, most prominent city is assigned the XX001 number.

One of the few straight roads near where I live. K-5 and DA16-45 a few years ago.

That's a nice image, and I can attest to there being very few straight streets in Norway.

Could not count how many times I've traveled that road, in fact, I don't want to try. Also, the original BIG LIE = Long Island "Expressway," in reality a linear parking lot. I remember when it was being built - to solve the problem of Long Island Traffic HA!

Coming from Queens/Manhattan to Nassau Co = the GPS can tell me that it is 10 minutes faster via the LIE... Nope, no thanks. I'll take my chances with the GCP or the Van Wyck to the Cross Island...

You should see the intersection of the GCP and the Van Wyck towards JFK = they're making about 10-15 ramps all over the place... it is a maze of construction nowadays... I hope it helps a bit.

With that many ramps, heaven help you if there's tipsy driver coming from an office party.

Funny, I haven't seen any traffic jams in about a year. When I go out by car, there's hardly anyone else on the road.

This is my street with smoke haze from the fires a couple of summers ago.
