That corner happens to contain a forlorn bus stop. At the time they were looking, they could see that all sorts of people--such as mothers with babies & the elderly--had to stand long periods waiting for woefully infrequent buses.
Empathizing with their situation and knowing of the City’s citizen-donated bench program, the couple undertook, with transportation authorities, to pay to install a bench at that stop. A snapshot of the bench and its location is to the left. A second snapshot shows the view from the bus stop toward 522 D. The third is of the plaque on the bench.
KUDOS to the Roes for their civic-spirit.
