Sounds great. I'll be there.

It's really a tour of the sacred cows of preservation.....
the sites that are still standing.

Somebody should do a tour
of Flushing's demolished historic building sites
and, perhaps, lay a wreath at each piece
of "developed" real estate that replaced it.

They'd far outnumber what's left standing.

Instead of the usual hot mulled cider.....
bitter gall should be served up cold
by the historical society for this kind of tour!
