One of my neighbors – an absentee landlord – has a tree with roots lifting up the sidewalk in front of his house. The broken fragments could stop a Sherman Tank. But any able–bodied pedestrian walking down my street after dark might also trip, fall, break a leg or demolish a kneecap on the broken concrete. The homeowner refuses to fix it. But when somebody gets hurt, he will be the one sued, not the town. If landlords want to make money on Jamestown, they should be smart enough to protect their investment, and their neighbors.
