    When a Mom & Pop shop is pushed from its digs to make way for a corporate chain, there is a sense of disorientation and loss because neighborhood-based businesses are personal and are rooted in an eco-system. The same can be said of “developers” who are too-often plunderers. I respectfully disagree with the analogy of the slo-mo pulling of the plug of a patient on life support because that misses the point made by supporters of “community” institutions like the Brooklyn Heights Cinema. Yes, we have to bury the dead to clear the battlefield, but it shouldn’t be done lightly.
