'Architectural nervous breakdown'
He then went on to list so many changes in the Grove. He asked me how we can stop one company from buying everything up in the village and how we can stop them from throwing all the businesses out. I told them we can't. He didn't like that answer.
Others have approached me about the changes. They have emailed me and stopped me in the street and asked me what we can do. We can't do anything. Hopefully the next commissioner will do something to take some sort of control over the village before it is too late. But I think it already is.
The Grove is having an "architectural nervous breakdown." I heard a lady on tv refer to Sunset Drive in Hollywood,CA like that. They are having the same challenges as we are, so is New York City and I think Philadelphia is really bad when it comes to new structures taking the place of historic structures; according to what I read you receive a 10 year tax credit or something for building new and up. And all these new pencil buildings planned for NYC are going to destroy that skyline, too.
Do people fear change? I don't think so, I think people move into an area or neighborhood and expect the neighborhood to remain and not be sold out to the highest bidder.
