Inga Saffron Says

"A walk down Old City's two main commercial streets, Second and Third, makes the problem clear. Even when buildings are fully occupied, with ground-floor shops and residents upstairs, they frequently look as if they need a top-to-bottom renovation. Some show bulges, a sign that the facade is in danger of separating from the supporting structure. Many brick facades are in dire need of pointing, and windows have been covered in plywood."
