Just how Sandy is NE Sandy Boulevard?

 

1921; A campaign to rename Sandy Boulevard begins because the name “Sandy’ was thought to infer a dirt road (and lower the tone of the area). 

But just how sandy is Sandy Boulevard?

 

Find the sand content in one square yard of Sandy Boulevard = 0.41 ounces

Calculate the surface yardage of Sandy Boulevard

(Length) 22176 yards x (width) 18 yards = 399168 square yards

399168 square yards x 0.41oz of sand = 163658.88 ounces

163658.88oz = 5.11434 tons

Which brings us to the conclusion that Sandy Boulevard has 5.11434 tons of sand on its surface.
