And the DRUG FREE ZONE warning sign is still there as well. (But, of course, this isn’t actually a drug-free zone. Not in the least.)
So, why do we even have flagpoles then?
Perhaps putting them in was a bad idea? Perhaps it’s easier to put in a flagpole than to take care of a flagpole over its lifetime? Perhaps we should take these flagpoles down if this how City, County, State and/or Federal officials are handling things?
Perhaps Redevelopment of the Fillmore was a bad idea?
Perhaps other federally-funded projects, such as the useless Central Subway, are bad ideas as well?
