Great to see someone with an imagination and the know how to make a restoration like this worth worthwhile to look into. Thank you Mr. Watson.

Throw enough taxpayers money at it you can make it beautiful!

Well when you think about spending 25 to 30 million for a new building I would rather investigate reconstructing the old one. Maybe you haven't noticed all the 100 year homes on the island that have had the same treatment.

Our city(environment and budget) is better with people like you Mr Watson.

Give the old boy a make over

Just because the Park Board (or City) thinks it has unlimited resources doesn't mean it is productive to simply discard or tear down existing investment. Restoration and upgrade would seem more practical. And, let's face it. Whatever exists there is going to have to continue to withstand the relentless assault by the elements. Sometimes an existing structure can even instruct you on remedying vulnerabilities. Restore and Improve. Take care of the structural issues, then maybe let one of the muralists have at it. Unlike some locations, that might be a swell place for some "Art"?
