What is wrong with people who do that, esp. the boot prints? The vandals have CREATED a tripping hazard.
Agree with 3:05. This POS is going to be stuck this way for YEARS. There is a deep boot print in the sidewalk outside my building and I curse the person who put it there every time I stumble over it.
I'm a city mouse, so I don't do any concrete-pouring myself, but I seem to recall that concrete can't cure properly when it's cold? I wonder if perhaps the concrete failed to properly set by the end of the work day, and at some point the workers gave up and left the still-wet sidewalk to the mercy of passersby.
@8:36pm: You may well have a point. I was wondering who'd pour concrete in the weather conditions we've been having.Somebody needs to report this to the city as a tripping hazard, and that patch of concrete needs to be torn out & completely replaced - and next time, somebody needs to STAY THERE all day (we used to always sit out with a baseball bat in hand, just sayin'). Then once it's firm enough to walk on without imprint, REMOVE the caution tape (which may as well say 'vandals welcome here').
Everyone complains about how much things cost, but because of douchebags like this you advocate for someone making $75/hr to stand next to a 15 sq ft patch of concrete to watch it dry? Maybe all of the neighborly folks who wish to preserve this neighborhood should tell hooligans to stop destroying property. It will cost $5,000 to replace those two slabs. And, commercial concrete can cure in just about any temperature if you mix it to comport with conditions.
Love that storefront for Gizmo. Reminds me of New York.
These foot impressions where no accident, notice how deep they are and how close together, someone jumped off the wood boards towards the curb to make these. The more shallow marks created when the "stomper" pull their feet out and walked away.
