It is just heartbreaking to look at all of the beauty that once stood and was mindlessly razed... City Hall for the Haydon Burns Library?? Forgive me if I cannot appreciate the "Fin Wonder" but this building was just incredible. I know not only Jacksonville , but practically no other large city would have saved all of these, but had we saved even 20 % of them, We would sure have a much better look into our past, coupled with modern. Now all we have are pictures and memories. I guess that is good.. but it just makes me sick that decisions to raze these incredible structures to replace them with Glass /Concrete structures that have no particular style is just sad....do not know any other way to put it.
We cannot afford to demolish any more of our past, folks.
