How in the world did this sidewalk get approved? Located on Second Street between Jefferson and Liberty Streets, this sidewalk is pretty much all open grate. It’s part of the Marriott Hotel and a block from the convention center. Besides being impassable by ladies in high heels and those nervous of walking over pits in the sidewalk, it’s probably pretty difficult for the disabled, too. And the hotel building does absolutely nothing to enhance the sidewalk, either. Quite an unfortunate example.
