A Sandy memorialette?

January 23rd, 2015

Using Street View, you can see that this log appeared here on the fence surrounding Lincoln High School sometime between June 2012 and September 2013. In that same interval, a sidewalk tree near the fence came down. Perhaps Hurricane Sandy brought the tree down onto the fence, and perhaps a little section of the tree was left on display as a reminder of the devastation wreaked by the storm. Sandy not only damaged the basement and the football field here at Lincoln; it also forced several students out of their homes and took the life of one of the school's teachers.
