  1. Sad that someone can't safely walk through the park. This is most unfortunate.

  2. I grew up in Woodrow Wilson Apartments facing devoe park in the 50's-60's. You never had to worry about walking in the park. It is very sad

    1. I also grew up in the Woodrow Wilson apartments. You are right. You never had to worry about safety. Of course, in those days, everybody looked out for everbody.
