Happy Endings

San Francisco! It's hilly here. So, when a truck lost its brakes and wiped out a handrail on a steep block of 48th Avenue at Balboa, residents assumed it'd be replaced, and fast. Shoot forward a few years and it's finally happened: the new handrail was installed last week. Richmond District Blog of San Francisco reports that 48th Avenue resident Gabriel Lampert worked with Supervisor Eric Mar's office and the DPW for several months to get it done. In March, the city agreed to replace the handrail. "I'm very happy, and can tell you that at least two seniors are using the rail already," Gabriel said. [Richmond District Blog of San Francisco]
