The saga of Hyde Park pedestrians trying to avoid death under the wheels of a truck or something continues. As you may recall, both sidewalks on the Fairmount Avenue bridge over the train tracks and the river went unplowed after the first storm. Then two hero civilians shoveled out one side. Then we got more snow and a snow-plow operator made quite sure (and no doubt unintentionally) that nobody was going to shovel it out again.
Fed up, David Shorr last week went to City Hall, punched 5 in the elevator and walked straight into the mayor's office and asked the sympathetic receptionist for action. And, it turns out, he got some, as you can see in his photo above.
Now all it needs is some salt. Well, and probably some quick shoveling today.
