Cool Hidden Sidewalk

DSCN8237, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

I love the fact that I get tips like this:

“On Havard street, just North of Lanier Place, on the north side of Harvard street, there is an elevated sidewalk. I do not quite understand it, as the sidewalk must be somewhat inconvenient if you live there, but it looks cool, has nice vantage points and is somewhat landscaped. I wonder what the thinking/history was behind it.”

I think this is what the reader was talking about. It really is quite cool. The backside hits the alley behind Irving Hobart in Mt. Pleasant.
