Main Street and Preakness Drive


Keeping with Ocala's claim to be the Horse Capitol of the World, the planners of the Heathbrook outdoor mall crossed Preakness Drive with Main Street.

Do you know if there is a Bellmont Street?

I grew up in Baltimore, home of the Preakness...in fact, I lived so close to the track that when my bedroom window was open I could hear the races being called.

Classy street signs. And a department store. I thought those were a thing of the past?

I'll give you one extra, made and used of my husband in many years:
"Forgetfulness is not a sign
at an incipient senile dementia
but a sure sign
on a very high intelligence"
...until now nobody have dislike those words *LOL*
Have a nice week ;-)

Very classy. Is the rest of the Triple Crown there too? MB MB

I was noticing how classy those signs look too!

I like this name better than the Curva di Euro! At least it makes sense for Ocala. And it doesn't make it sound like it's just a greedy shopping center than wants your money. Although they probably do...

Ah, nice to see the planners had a...er...plan. So, is every street named after something horse related?

I really like the colors in this photo and, as always, everything seems so....clean!
