    A pig by any other name is still a pig.
    No matter what they are named, in a few years they will look exactly the same as those that were torn down.
    I am sure back in the 40's when the original projects were built, they had the same discussions.
    People should have a choice where they live by the voucher system.

    "Villas on the Strand"...


    I wonder how Strand businesses feel, having tenements associated with their locale.

    It's a shame I worked from can to can't all of my life. I could have lived on the strand. Darn......
