Bell Street Park - Lurching Toward Completion
I walked past the Bell Street Park construction on 4th yesterday and I'm a little surprised at how slowly it's going. They've only finished one block and that isn't very impressive. Like I've said in the past, it looks more like a traffic revision and less like a park. And all this was supposed to be done in 2009. Regardless of how disappointing it may turn out to be, it will be an improvement over this:
They've been working on this stretch between 3rd and 4th for over a month and it still looks like downtown Stalingrad.
This block isn't much better.
I feel pretty sorry for the people facing all this action. Well, in time (probably a lot of time), it will be done. And then there will be bums sleeping in the bushes. Fun!
