Hi,
In front of me is a green wall, where there are several posters on it.

Is the underlined part necessary here?
Is it kind of wordy?

Thank you so much.

    I don't think you can use "on it" together with "where": it sounds odd. :(

    In front of me is a green wall, on which there are several posters.
    In front of me is a green wall, with several posters on it.

    would all work. :)

    I like Donny's rewording. I'm on the fence about the comma before "with", but "on it" can be omitted.
