Letter: Stop fighting to keep the Bachelor Building

Stop fighting to keep the Bachelor Building

Just when I thought the city was surging ahead, once again the relics or preservationists are doing their best to keep Buffalo in the past. First, let me say there are certainly examples of where keeping Buffalo’s historic past is valid, but the Bachelor Building is not one of them.

Just look at the side-by-side pictures in The News of the old versus the new. It’s not even close. The Bachelor Building is grey, drab and ugly! Ellicott’s proposal is fresh and vibrant.

So, preservationists, please step aside and let the city continue its great strides.
