*** Sidewalk Weekend! ***

Sidewalk Rating: Impending

“One among numerous witnesses attesting to the inconveniences and outrages suffered at the Grand Central Depot stated that the passengers “are passed in like hogs. Just before the train starts—sometimes only ten minutes, the doors are opened and there is a scramble pell mell. Hats are knocked off, people kicked in the shins, trampled on the toes and pushed this way and that. I have seen women treated shamefully in that way. I have known them to be left-behind for two trains after they have been waiting a whole hour, but could not get through the gate” (1).

[from Krystal D'Costa, on Scientific American.]


[Construction for I-94 in St Paul, c. 1967.]
