Last winter cars filled with young people started to park in front of my house. On warmer evenings they'd all get out of their cars and hang out together. It wasn't anything rowdy, just chit chat, cigarettes, soda. How did this street become such a magnet for this? It's quiet here. And it's dark, at least it is at this particular spot on the street, the top of a "T" where one street ends right in front of my house.
So I called the city and asked for a streetlight, figuring if the darkness was gone so too would be the unwanted visitors. The man at the councilman's field office said he'd get right on it. And this morning, about 10 months later, this happened.
