New York Shitty Manhole Patrol: Hopscotch

Perhaps it is the overcast weather, but today yours truly has a case of the doldrums. No, make that had. Thanks to the immensely talented Will Star I got a little inspiration. So I grabbed a few sticks of sidewalk chalk and headed over to Clay Street. Why Clay Street, you ask? Very simple: it is located just around the corner from Barge Park Playground and sports the above depicted plundered access cover. I felt by perhaps drawing a hopscotch grid around this hazard it would make people aware that it is only a matter of time before someone (very likely a child) injures him/herself by falling into it.
