Walking Under The El
My principal Mr. O'Connell recently talked to us about walking under the elevated subway line. He instructed us to walk as close to the pillars as possible. As a student of The Scholars' Academy, I believe that students shouldn't even have to walk in the street. Blocks of cement have been known to fall from the el onto the street. There is a sidewalk next to the road [that] is covered in weeds and vines and it is very difficult to walk on. I feel these sidewalks should be repaired so kids traveling to school will be safe from passing cars and falling cement.
