    Kevin was walking down the streets.

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Kevin was walking down the streets. After a few minutes went down the stairs near to his parent's house. He sat in the stairs and listened his special song for a while. After one minute, he stood up and went on.

    When he walked outside Ligura Building, an middle age lady was going out of the building. Kevin suspired.


    A few streets away, he saw the "sidewalk closed" sign right in front of him, on a big, green, wooden wall that was blocking his way."

    Thanks.

    Those sentences don't connect well with each other.

    Re: Kevin was walking down the streets.

    "... walked on." <------------> "When he was outside, etc."
    "Kevin was surprised." <------------> "A few streets away, etc."
