Underground Pedway

How safe is the underground pedway near the museums? I know there's an entrance near 1100 S. Columbus Drive near the Aquarium. Input greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  • Sheila A. Donovan Have been an owner at the Stratford since 2001.

    I've used the underpass to the museum campus countless times without a problem. In fact, I've never heard of anyone having a problem there, though like anywhere there might have been a few incidents. I consider it to be quite safe.

  • Thanks so much, everyone! I thought it was going to be completely underground, but it ended up being an open underpass as folks have mentioned. I'm curious to try the actual underground Pedway. I guess I should explore one of these days!

  • MLN

    Pretty stupid to leave a car running.

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged but may contain typos.

    Nice white socks. Could be Cliff Clavin. Hard times for fictional USPS workers these days.

  • When it is cold out it is very tempting to leave the car running to warm it up or keep it warm. I sent this article around to my family as a reminder. Running cars are very easy targets. Hope it serves as reminders to others.
