Abandoned

Anna's Beauty No funny stories of dumb burglars in this week’s blotter, instead sad news, quoted from Capt. Dudley:

Last week we were called to a scene where a body was found in a remote area in Chinatown. The person apparently died from a fall or other such natural cause, but had been lying in the rain for over a day. I would like to make sure that does not happen again. We are looking to turn the neglected area into a playground for neighborhood kids with help from the YMCA, Nike and the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services.

FYI: The Police Community Meeting is held on the third Thursday of Each month at Tel-Hi Community Room at 660 Lombard Street from 6-7 PM.

    A “remote” area of Chinatown? Where in the world would that be?

    Yeah I can’t imagine any area that isn’t passed by at least 100 people a day. Maybe it’s in a courtyard or something, that you can’t see from the street?

    I don’t know. A courtyard would make sense to me, but according to the police blotter, they’re trying to turn the area where the body was found into a playground. So it’s a big enough area for a playground, and it’ll have to be publicly accessible as a playground, which presumably means that it must at least be next to an area that’s now open to the public.

    Although, maybe it’s an elevated area or rooftop? I haven’t been there for ages, but I think the courts at the Chinese Playground are built over something. And Cameron House has an elevated court area (although that’s over their own courts, not on top of a building).

    I just still can’t visualize where this might be.
