There used to be one at the corner of Huntington and South Huntington Avenue in Boston. It's been gone for a couple of years now.

The cross-section there is absurd.

almost 18 lanes of traffic intersecting there.

I've known a lot of librarians in my life -- in fact my first job, right out of college, was working in a library for one summer -- and Paula was the friendliest, and possibly most energetic, librarian I've ever known.

I'm still saddened by her death, and shocked that I was chatting with her just a couple of days earlier and then, boom, there her picture was online. A real loss, especially to all the children whom she delighted.

Rest in peace, Paula.
