Like me, you may have never seen him (or her?). But if you've walked around the sidewalks of downtown Charleston then you, too, have seen his work. Perhaps you have admired it as well. The tools employed in making his art are unknown to me, but his subtlety and feathery touch are something to behold.
That's right: the City of Charleston Sidewalk Grinding Man made an appearance yesterday outside of our home on Ashley Avenue. I hadn't even noticed the uneven pavement before, but no matter. The Sidewalk Grinding Man noticed. He swooped down, mitigated the offending concrete, and then disappeared. That's what he (or she) does.
One more reason why Charleston is the Greatest City on the Planet*.
