Preservation has made Baltimore better

April 19, 2011

"Stop fighting, start demolishing" is The Sun's advice ("Time to stop fighting about Superblock and start building," April 18) on the historic Read's drugstore and other buildings on the west side "Superblock." Indeed, historic preservationists have delayed a number of grand demolition projects in Baltimore — like the waterfront expressway from the Inner Harbor to Fells Point, or the low-level harbor crossing that would have obliterated Federal Hill, or the replacement of our splendid Victorian City Hall with some sort of brutalist bunker.

Keep fighting, preservationists!
