Sweater #232

While strolling around down town Evanston on Saturday, the brightly painted fire hydrants caught my eye.  As the iconic symbol of relief in time of emergency, the placement of this sweater here seemed ideal.  It was also a great convergence of streets and pedestrian traffic as people wandered by, shopping and following various historical and architectural tours of the town. Across the street from this location, several street people were hawking Streetwise, a paper that provides some income to the vendor and some interesting articles about the struggles that homeless folks encounter. While many people pass the vendor by as they are walking, it seems like a great way to engage the average pedestrian with such an important issue.
