Every day I walked the two blocks to 11th Street, another main north-south street you can almost see at the bottom of the hill, and a short block to Emerson Elementary School.
That was easy.
Walking home was not.
But, in winter, when slick ice covered the hill, we kids would slide from the top of the hill all the way to 11th street and, sometimes, I think, across 11th Street.
Dangerous, but you know how kids 11 and 12 are.
