To paraphrase Gil Scott Heron: The first thing we have to say is: landmark my a**.
It seems odd that in a neighborhood known for its fierce defense of architecture and craftsmanship that it was so easy for workers at the Hotel St. George to demolish the mural that adorned one of its walls for decades so quickly. Yet, here it is broken into pieces disposed of like common trash and destined for obscurity.
It’s been discussed here before, but is the next landmarking battle to be fought indoors? Can it be won?
