    Wouldn’t be caught DEAD walking along Grand Ave. What is so fricking special about that area, anyway?? Don’t tell me that I can’t appreciate GOOD art, what I have a problem with is appreciating BAD ART.

    That is an old neighborhood, still much as it was when my grandparents moved there in 1933. It’s large enough that developers can’t easily change it. The bakery we shopped at on Syndicate and Randolph 35 years ago is still there with only a modified front (PJ Murphy’s). That’s how a city should be. Why fix what isn’t broken? A home should be a home for generations; not a play ground for developers and greedy local politicians.
