City Paper is not for tourists
That’s what the Examiner is reporting.
According to the quasi-daily, the Gallery Place Metro stop has been so overrun with kids that station employees have taken to calling it “7th and Hell.”
That’s kinda catchy.
But the real scoop here is this: According to the Examiner, employees at the Fuddruckers at 7th and H have “resorted to locking the restaurant’s doors during business hours to keep out the crush of kids who have no intention of buying food.”
A store manager is quoted saying that youngsters have turned the place into “pandemonium.”
Understandable, I guess. But as a guy who scouts out all possible fire-escape options whenever alighting on a new public place, I gotta raise a stink about this door-locking thing: Doesn’t that violate the fire code?
