I lend my heart to all preservationists who have worked hard throughout the years to save this irreplaceable gem from the wrecking ball. Bless you! I beg City Council and the people responsible for placing a bulldozer on that property, NOT to let this happen!!! It would be a huge tragedy! Reopen it & see the smile on faces of countless enthusiasts.
