Preservationists in Chicago Fear Losing Ground to Condos - New York Times - 0 views

    Watch what's left of a once distinguished architectural legacy be destroyed because our city is run by idiots. Consider this quote:

    ""Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," Alderman Matlak said. "A lot of people don't want 19th-century buildings.I grew up in a frame house. My bedroom was 8 by 8. People don't want that now."

    Then - here's a wild idea. Maybe they might try moving into one of the neighborhoods that isn't historic? Which, in Chicago, is almost all of them, now?

    Speaking as somebody who lives in Chicago, I can report that the difference of opinion between the developers and the preservationists on this is not an honest one; the rate of demolition has not been exaggerated one bit..
