Of Interest

Will Doig, who writes the Dream City column for Salon, had an article in Salon over the weekend that finds a new and very au courant way to vilify historic preservation and historic districts: "Preserving history, or the 1 percent?" The focus of the piece is Greenwich Village, light years away in its evolution from our little city, but there are resonances for historic preservation here. Roberta Brandes Gratz, preservation advocate and longtime champion of Hudson and its historic architecture-driven renaissance, was interviewed for the article and is quoted at some length.
