Hollensbury lived right next to an alleyway, and his distaste for the noise of loud passersby, horse-drawn carriages, and sounds of broken bottles were finally getting to him. The growing noise and late-night brawls polluted every corned of his house, even floating right up to his upper-story window in the middle of the night. He'd finally had enough, and one day, he came up with a way to put a stop to it.

Alleyways have been a great cause for concern for a lot of homeowners around the world. Not only do you have to put up with the constant fear that your home could get broken into, but the incessant rumble of people walking by, cars, horns, and carriages can drive someone half mad. Fortunately, Hollensbury didn't let it get to him. He got down and dirty and devised a plan to stop the noise once and for all.

Hollensbury let out a high-pitched evil laugh while he concocted the perfect plan to put a stop to the infernal noises that were making his life impossible. He still wondered if what he was planning on doing was even legal in the first place. But that didn't stop his master evil plan from stopping the traffic altogether, once and for good. He was going to make them all pay!

Hollensbury wasted no time and started building something. No matter how exhausting it'd be, he would work on his project until the very end, and no wagon would ever pass through the alleyway ever again. If there was something he hated with a passion, it was traffic, and now he'd never have to hear it from his window again...that is, if everything worked out as he had planned. Suddenly, things got a bit complicated for Hollensbury.

Hollensbury ran into a little problem. The alleyway was considered public property, and that meant he didn't have permission to build on it. Still, he wasn't about to let anything ruin his master plan, not even the law. There was still one more card he could play as he was a chairman on the council board. Hollensbury used his position of power to pull off one of history's most elaborate tricks, which would end up leaving a mark on the neighborhood.
