I am very much in favor of homes being restored in the Historic District.
My point is that the so called HISTORIC Downtown Business District is not pretty, not clean, no matter how many times Front Street changes from one way to two way traffic patterns. The coolest look was the old clock in front of the jewelry store, which is gone now, right?
Give me the Southport look along front street anyday! I'd say that it appears to be very CLEAN and may invite new businesses, and attract tourists who hang around a lot longer, and a better class of local citizens who do not throw-up in the trees, alleys, stairwells every night.
Get rid of the DIRTY WINDOWED store fronts, the BLACK TILE because it fits into your world and Modernize! It is okay to have a dichotomy of mediums.
And...dissing Southport because I dissed our business district that is forced to maintain historically correct architecture shows that you are a Snob!
Your verbiage, "VINTAGE Antique" locks it in.
