No defense against ugly

To the Editor,

Wilmington has many second-home owners and visitors who provide a large portion of the town’s revenue.

People come here seeking the pleasure of a friendly, colonial atmosphere, away from crowded, high pressure environments.

To put an eyesore of a building in the middle ofWilmington’s Historic District is a bit like putting junk in a neighbor’s yard.

It’s sad that the town, apparently, has no defense against ugly architecture. This lowers the appeal of the town, which costs us all.

Been to Chicago? Chicago's noted for its architectural variety. People go there, sleep in hotels and eat in restaurants to see this.
