Let me join the chorus of residents praising our village board for scotching the demolition and redevelopment of 1014-18 Pleasant. These are architecturally significant buildings exhibiting any number of century-old refinements such as satellite dishes, cable TV and Internet wiring, and window air conditioners.
They are completely consistent with their neighboring mega-footprint multi-story buildings, not to mention Pleasant Home, the perfection of which would be diminished by the loss of these two fine structures.
The character of the block has been scrupulously maintained by eschewing parking-regulation signs, restricting street use to pedestrians and horse-drawn buggies, and forbidding the serving of alcohol within 300 feet of the block.
