I had not been to this stretch of the Greenway, having mostly been around the Albemarle Road access for weed pulls, so I took a walk today with Alderman Jim Cote and NNA member Lois Dominique, who walks there regularly and knows the problem areas.
She and Ward 1 Alderman Alison Leary had picked up litter just last Saturday (carefully, because hypodermic needles have turned up), so it looked better than it had, but there was still new litter. It appears the homeless people who had been camping out near California and Bridge Streets are not there now.
Despite the problems which have been reported, not just recently, but going back at least a couple of years, you can see from my video what a lovely walk this is, and we are lucky to have it. We had an unexpected and pleasant surprise about 2/3 of the way through -- a red-tailed hawk (we think) swooped down and landed on a tree trunk near us, lingered a minute and then flew off. We were all thrilled by that!
