Frank Lloyd Wright supposedly said something to the effect of: if you live in the ugliest building in your neighborhood, you don't have to look at it. Well some folks in my old neighborhood are pretty upset that they have to look at this:
I haven't seen it in person yet, but I'm not so upset. Our old building, where the renter in our small 1BR apt no longer has a kitchen window because the new building covered it up, is the red brick one on the right of the giant pink thing. Now our building (along with many others in the neighborhood) isn't so historically-situated either, something seemingly lost on many of the folks making such a stink. Anyway, this is (tangentially) related to one of the many reasons we decided to find unrestricted property for our cabin: no one can complain about what it looks like except us.
