While holding two Grand Central Market shopping bags filled with groceries, this regular shopper watched the car carefully float to the bottom of Angels Flight Sunday afternoon. Beaming that it once again was operating, he lifted his purchases ad entered past the gate to begin a trip back to his home on Bunker Hill. A ritual returns to Downtown.
Just as he was about step into the cab, he turned to a guide appointed to assist riders to ask "Where's the safest place to sit?"
Angels Flight was in operation Sunday for a "soft opening." The regular operating schedule begins Monday at 6:45am and runs until 10pm. Safety features will be a big topic in tomorrow's stories.
