And the Walls Come Tumbling Down

This is what’s left of the Sydney Hillman Medical Center.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m not happy the building is going (going, going, nearly gone) and I’ve been wondering what the skyscraper that’s slated to go there will do to the area…and, specifically, how it will relate to the gorgeous old churches nearby.  I have to say, now that I’ve seen the lot in an almost empty state, I’m even more concerned because it really is not a huge parcel.  A friend of mine quipped that the developer of the new tower’s from Chicago, and if anyone knows how to “convince” officials that a project is a good one, it’s a Chicago developer.

Yeah, color me cynical.

About deb

Wandering and wondering - taking it all in -- and increasingly shaking my head. Who are we and how did we get to this here? And, what, where and how next? Putting what I see and think out there in pictures and always looking for other ways, hence, this blog. This blog, like me, is a work in process and still doesn't quite know what it wants to be when it grows up.
