totally off-topic, friends...
Just a story from some random US (or was it Canada?) newspaper, never heard of it before, about how some neighborhood bar of eighty or so years was destroyed today
to make (yet another) bank and a parking lot. Oh, don't forget they're widening the street.
I saw in the photos the place was iconic, with custom brickwork and limestone. It had been there since Prohibition and had a strong community!!
From comments "For those that are interested in the banks in the
area here is a list of nine in less than a mile on [the] Buolevard. From the first on the list to last , distance is 0.6 of a mile:"
"exactly! I get the need for physical locations, but not one on every corner."
Sad that many cities and towns don't have strong laws protecting cultural landmarks.
