ScoutingNY noticed a small neighborhood in the Bronx with some extremely nerdy names: Library Ave, Research Ave, Watt Ave, and Radio Drive.
The best of all intersections is where Ampere Ave (ampere is the full version of “amp”, the electric current unit) and Ohm Ave (ohm is another unit of measure of electricity).
Turns out the parcel of land was donated by Isaac Leopald Rice, inventor, chess patron, and of president of the Electric Storage Battery Co. after his death in 1915. The street names are a tribute to him.
4. Here’s the location in the Bronx:
- We've compiled an extensive (but not exhaustive) list of lies, exaggerations, and bullshit from Trump's first 100 days in office 💯🗒
- United Airlines has settled with the man shown being violently dragged off a plane in a video that spurred widespread outrage.
- An admitted fraudster has access to Trump through his wife's job at Mar-a-Lago — and he's tried to use it to his advantage.
- "The Real Housewives" has remained a cultural force for over a decade by reinventing itself. But has the show peaked? 👠 🔥
