I stood at the diagonal corner from Walgreen's yesterday and really looked at the building. Though I'd been in the store countless times, I hadn't really looked up.
It is a beautiful, elegant, large building! Please, please, don't tear it down!

Whew! Thank goodness this building wasn't part of an Eruv. If it were, many parents couldn't push their strollers until it were rebuilt.

What a nasty, gratuitous, totally irrelevant comment.

Palo Parent - I guess you thought that was funny. Don't quit that day job.

Come on, PA Utilities! Nobody wants the historic over-77-year-old to be torn down! We love that store, and it's a beautiful building. plz don't tear it down! just fix it and repaint it!

Please, WEEKLY, have your good photographer take photos of the building so that we can all see what it really looks like. For example, from the diagonal corner.
