Get lost?

Don't forget this ditty from the Dec 3, 1926 New York Times:

Verse Affords Means to Get About Queens
--
E. P. Butler's Rhyming System Guides All Folks When Street Plans Twist 'Em.


I want to get this framed in needlepoint. I don't why; I just do.
In Queens, to find locations best
Avenues, roads and drives run west;
But ways to north or south ’tis plain
Are street or place or even lane.
While even numbers you meet
Upon the west and south of street.

We may get lost at time. But someday we'll understand things clearly. See the link below for more info.
