This was the Eagle sign on Tuesday. Across Fourth the condo buildings lord above a rowhouse block, taking away light and any sense of proportion.
As I took pictures, I got chatting to one of the owners of Superior Tinsmith, a multi-generation business that is immediate neighbor to one of the giants. A familiar tale of property damage, insurance company dropping coverage, and sheer frustration, with a city that has absolutely no regard for the rights of the individual. How did our lives as long-standing residents, property owners, small business owners, become as nothing?
