My Mural Concern

This isn't too far from Chez Atrios. The Philly murals are generally great, but to a great degree they were used to try to add a more pleasing spin to urban decay. Empty lots and surface parking lots suck. Empty lots with a pretty murals suck less, but they're still empty lots. It'll be a shame to lose the mural, but it won't be a shame to lose the empty lot. The city is slowly reversing decades of decline.
