4/24/2012 Demolishing historic buildings before there is an end-user and final design for the site is premature. It negates the option of restoring and utilizing the existing buildings for the new tenant. Of particular concern is the demolition of the histor...     read more Sandra Stokes

4/24/2012 I am sure that all of these structures are readily repairable, but then so were virtually all of the public buildings destroyed by the City Hall Gangsters. All they care about is contracts for their "patrons", their MASTERS, and graft for themselves. Edwin Weber

4/24/2012 Quit raping your city of its precious historical gems! Preserve them, don't raze them! EVERY historical building, even the tiniest, is a significant contribution to your city as a whole. The more you chip away at your historical architecture, you chi...     read more Kristi Jones

4/13/2012 Who is going crazy? Why in the world would anyone do this? It is insand, unnecessary, destructive to our architectural treasury. Please do not let then do this. Peggy Wilson

4/13/2012 This is where Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong lived as a young boy, and where he got his first cornet. Our city's administration's push seems geared towards demolishing many of our city's most important jazz-related buildings, rather than working with jazz...     read more Wendy King
