Re: OFFICIAL - The New Yorker (Hotel Bray)

Re: Black leaders seek to rename Paseo to MLK Blvd

No. Why would you combine a memorial to WWI war dead with a civil rights leader that was killed 50 years later? Doesn't compute.

Re: Clay Chastain coming back with light rail

Why is the Clay Chastain the only person/groups proposing anything? Lack of regional cooperation and civic support for a more comprehensive plan.

Re: Joe's Lofts - 6th & McGee

I wonder what is the purpose in knocking all those doors into the side of the building? Is the building sub-divided into small work loft spaces and the upper story windows provide light to the lower floor?
