The scaffolding on the apartment building at Polk and Green has got to go. It is simply unsightly. I hate to pick favorites (not!), but I must admit it sits on my favorite block of Polk (between Green and Union). This ominous black sheath might pass for Halloween, but if it remains stationary for long, the block will be demoted. That would sting. From the looks of it, the building is being painted; it used to be beige, and now it is blue (see that? deduction!). I get that. Everyone needs a little nipping and tucking now and then. But the Polk folk are waiting: make haste.
On a side note, je t’aime La Boulange, but neon green paint!? C’est vraiment nécessaire?
