And then, there is what you see above.
The 6th Avenue bridge is closed and there is a rotting, abandoned hotel on the other side. It's been this way for decades. It's right in the center of the downtown-- near the fire station and city hall.
Could you imagine what could be done with this space? Parking? A park? An event venue? Even an empty lot would be an improvement, not to mention the improved traffic flow a new bridge would mean.
It's a blotch on a fine city that should have been taken care of years ago.
