Re: “The New York Times Blows It Again

Dear Times,

Stay out of my neighborhood. I didn't move here to be a spectacle to NY tourists.

Truly Yours,

Re: “Chicago Without Coal

I would be curious to see the environmental analysis comparing the inefficiency of these coal plants to the energy cost of installing a $178 M infrastructure upgrade.

Also, plants of these type will never be constructed again, and in that sense it is a beautiful wonder of the industrial age. Does anyone else besides find tall brick factories much more attractive than sprawling, plain modernist facilities?

Not to say that justifies pollution, but perhaps we need to consider the artistic and historical elements before diving head-first into an ill-conceived demolition and urban renewal.

I'd rather live by an old coal plant than a condo development.
