New Era at Junk/Free Corner? (162)


I notice that two signs have been posted on the light pole at Junk/Free Corner at 7th and C streets asking people not to leave “unwanted goods” in “this space.”

This is an impressive assertion of a desire to upgrade Old North public space. I laud this initiative because we need a great many efforts of this kind.

Unhappily, this effort is, so far, anonymous. It would be excellent if the proposers of an improved corner identified themselves so that we could tell them directly how much we support them and provide them whatever real help we can muster.
