Pedestrian Watch

Columbus Park around Brooklyn's Borough Hall may be getting some new granite slabs to replace the menacing bluestone tiles that have been tripping pedestrians for over five years. Under the new $11 million proposal, the crumbling 2-inch-thick bluestone tiles would be replaced with three-inch-thick granite slabs reinforced by six inches of concrete. The need for the repaving has become dire in the past several years. The parks department will be pitching the proposal to the mayor's office in hopes that they will foot the bill. [BP]
