Preservation Watch: Saffron Weighs In

Philadelphia architecture critic Inga Saffron writes about the Church of the Assumption today in her Changing Skyline column: "Let's face it, historic buildings get torn down all the time in Philadelphia, a city with more fine architecture than anyone knows what to do with." What makes this church different, Saffron notes, is that it's supposedly protected by the Historical Commission. "That's what makes the threatened demolition of the Church of the Assumption so troubling." [Inquirer]
