Reply Karen January 12, 2012 - 7:24 am Well I know this is Ozone Park..I grew up there. I never thought that they rhymed. Reply chris January 12, 2012 - 8:25 am No clue but I enjoy these ‘tests’ Kevin. Reply Tom January 12, 2012 - 8:53 am Jamaica Estates in Queens- lots of little streets, cul-de-sacs, hills- beautiful. Reply Maria S January 12, 2012 - 9:46 am This intersection is in beautiful Ozone Park!! Reply r185 January 12, 2012 - 11:17 am Don’t know what connection Ozone Park has to coffee, but…the coffee tree (chicot) is pronounced shēˈkō according to Merriam-Webster: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/chicot. Reply Dave January 12, 2012 - 11:56 am Ozone Park. Reply Candi Smith January 12, 2012 - 2:20 pm Chicot is French; the two words do rhyme. Reply Alex January 12, 2012 - 2:28 pm “Chico Rico” could mean “rich kid”, among other things in some neighborhoods. I guess depending on how you spell Chicot it does indeed rhyme. Reply Rick Keech January 12, 2012 - 2:36 pm Well, this is an interesting sign….something more likely seen in Arkansas than New York City. Here, we pronounce it as a frenchy “Chee-coh”; it rhymes with “Rico” as you suspected. In southeast Arkansas near the Mississippi River is Lake Village on Lake Chicot, and there is a small community south of there named Chicot. In southern edge of Little Rock, in Pulaski and Saline counties, there is also Chicot Road. Reply Rick Keech January 12, 2012 - 2:40 pm I forgot to mention this: Chicot County is a county located in the U.S. state of Arkansas.The county seat is Lake Village. Chicot County is Arkansas’s tenth county, formed on October 25, 1823, and named after Point Chicot on the Mississippi River. Reply Bob Sklar January 12, 2012 - 3:54 pm This intersection is close to the uncompleted portion of Linden Blvd. in Queens between 88th St. and Cross Bay Blvd. Anyone know if the aborted building of this road was connected to the abandonment of an extension of the IND subway east of the current Euclid Av. station? Reply Steve January 13, 2012 - 10:09 am I remember riding along Linden Blvd toward Conduit and passing that … farm, apparently … on the southwest corner of the aforesaid streets. It was a pleasant surprise. I wish the far-flung portions of Brooklyn and Queens had never been built up, since it seems to me that the building was done in such haste and so shoddily that it’s just and endless wasteland of charmless urban sprawl, devoid of any interspersion of nature. Reply Rick Keech January 13, 2012 - 2:43 pm I noticed that just south of “Chicot Rd.” is “Desarc Rd.” This is also an Arkansas place name. Des Arc is a city in and the county seat of the northern district of Prairie County, Arkansas. I wonder if there was a connection between Ozone Park and an Arkansan? Reply KevinJWalsh January 14, 2012 - 10:42 am That’s too much to be mere coincidence. Reply Tom January 13, 2012 - 9:02 pm Ozone Park, just South of John Adams HS Reply gy January 14, 2012 - 10:08 pm OZONE PARK Reply george January 14, 2012 - 10:09 pm OZONE PARK QUEENS Reply Dave C. January 15, 2012 - 12:36 pm “Chicot and the Man”, launched Freddie Prinze’s career. Reply T.J. Connick January 17, 2012 - 7:16 pm Mother of mercy, is this the end of Rico, or merely where it crosses Chicot? Reply John Tambini January 22, 2012 - 11:14 pm Ozone Park near Crossbay blvd Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
