Visiting the Nightingale bridge was an eye opener. It was the first time I actually looked at the channel below the bridge and I realized how dirty it was. All I seen was trash all over the place. The channel lacks beauty and I believe that there is a way to restore it. From where I was standing i could barley see any water at all. I've passed the bridge many times and still have seen no change. I think if the channel was more accessible people would actually visit it and help clean. Taggers and other people who vandalize the river only vandalize it because no one cares about it but if people actually cared then maybe it will change.
