Alabany's Historic Preservation Challenges
Albanyâ€™s historic-preservation record has improved over the last decade, but frustrations and failures continue...Community support for historic buildings is not always there, however. On other occasions, Albanyâ€™s citizens not only take the opportunity to dance on historyâ€™s grave, they sell off the bones... The point seems to be that, despite gains, historic preservation is still a harder sell than it should beâ€"and often not a priority for city leaders or residents. For every triump...[there's] a historically unique distillery buried under tons of concrete."
