Eyesore of the Month

I spend my days as a city planner and I’m really interested in all the aspects of architecture and urban design that go with the job. What a community or neighborhood looks like really affects the social and psychological well being of a person.

Have you ever heard of James Howard Kunstler? He’s a constructive critic of America as it stands. I want to share his Eyesore of the Month website with you… you might see some familiar places on it. I did!

This is a building...the January 2009 Eyesore of the Month...that I pass by almost every day… and I couldn’t agree more. I don’t know what was up with design in the sixties!

  1. I agree. It just sticks out especially from the angle. Hopefully it can get redesigned and put in the same place. Of course, that's probably not going to happen.
