LETTER: A need for wide steps

Re: Too steep to be a boulevard

I echo Abram Davis’ sentiments entirely.

I was thinking exactly the same thing, particularly as I huffed and puffed my way up the icy slope on my lunch hour today.

What about nice wide steps with intermittent landings, or pull-off areas … big enough for a bench, a modest shade tree and maybe even a sculpture or informative kiosk display?

There could still be a sloped running sidewalk beside the stairway or on the other side of Hall Street for those unable to negotiate stairs.

I think it’s an exciting project and I am particularly happy about the proposed improvements to the Hall/Vernon intersection where as a pedestrian, or as a driver, it’s a tricky crossroads.
