Funny how we can feel for an inanimate object like a building. Yet, this gem of 1920s art deco design barely had a chance to shine. Opened only a year before the Great Depression, after which it was toss around from owner to owner before being abandoned, it’s finally getting the care and attention we should have to each other.
And perhaps that’s some of the reason why we can feel for an inanimate object like a building. It becomes a permanent person in a community, a familiar face, a landmark. Stable and strong and now, getting a necessary makeover to restore its youth and bring back the intent of the original designer.
