Re: “After Long Public Debate, Crew Takes Down Tree at Maggie Walker Memorial Site

@RichmondResidentfor20years
Your comment shows how little you know about Maggie Walker. She's one of the most significant figures, black or white, ever to live in this city and is certainly worthy of a prominent and highly visible monument of her own. Born in the shadow of slavery and the Civil War, she rose to be one of the first female bank presidents and founders. She can serve as an inspiration to Richmonders of all races of what can be accomplished no matter what the circumstances of your life, a message sorely needed by the impoverished children of this city.

Re: “Behind the Scenes at VCU's $41.2 Million Institute For Contemporary Art

This will always be an unlovely corner more devoted to transportation and automobiles than people. Even a years worth of effort to redub the intersection as a "gateway" to downtown did little to improve it. The rear entrance is hardly more appealing backing up to an alley, a gas station and the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant. I have to question the thought process that went into this site selection. The only remediation I see possible is if they could redevelop these "backdoor" properties into some sort of transition space to connect it with a renovated Monroe Park. As it is it will be an island of art and architecture surrounded by sea of asphalt and concrete.
