A large chunk of sidewalk broke off a cliff in a popular walking area in Santa Cruz on Friday, causing a hazard for pedestrians and a bureaucratic headache for locals. The sidewalk on West Cliff Drive caved in near Columbia Street, close to the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum. The incident took place on Black Friday, a popular day for pedestrians to stretch their legs after a Thanksgiving feast. It does not appear anyone was hurt when the sidewalk caved in. The West Cliff Drive pathway just past Columbia caved in.
