Growth's Destructive Tendencies Threaten New Deal Historic Places
Around the country, architecture and public art, the legacy of a huge national project to overcome the Great Depression, are facing the wrecking ball. We're a throw away society. Some of these buildings may be in such disrepair that they aren't worth saving, but seeing how growth and development spread with abandon, I bet some of them could be preserved and rehabilitated, perhaps with a new national works project to overcome this recession.
