When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, “See! This our father did for us.” – John Ruskin
I would like to officially say goodbye to the historic houses on Busti Avenue that we demolished for “progress” this past weekend. My heart goes out to the groups, organizations and neighbors that fought for 15 years to stop this. No, this is not fair.
