The fence that surrounds the former Lerner newspaper factory used to stick out a foot further. Most of the poles were cut flush to the ground. Save four.
Walking towards the Art and Sol flea market this past Saturday this typist witnessed a fellow fair goer trip on one of these. The view above shows that the pole remnants stick up an inch and a half. Just enough to stub your toe real good or cause someone to fall.
Falls can lead to serious injury or death. Fractures, concussions, broken nose, bruised ribs or a chipped tooth.
Thankfully the pedestrian who tripped this past Saturday was able to catch his bearings and continue on to enjoy the flea market. ("Suffice it to say" this writer will inform Ward 49 of this issue tomorrow morning.)
