I'll 'fess up here: I am subject to my own reminiscences regarding Downtown Hamilton. I've seen it in its last two 'incarnations of greatness' and so it grieves me in a different way than those who simply check out archives and get upset. I want that whole area from Queen to Wellington, King to the bayfront to be all that it can be...even those areas that have never shone, never been developed.

I'm not so naïve as to not understand why the core changed, outside of neglect. But I guess that makes me want things that I believe should be there, mostly because I believe in synergy and organic growth...even if I don't claim to be either an urban planner or a Jane Jacobs acolyte; my 'training' comes from having lived in a fascinating selection of communities and on a subconscious level, understand what *I* need to see in a core for it to provide *me* the sustenance, to resonate in an invigourating and sustaining way. (What the core currently offers is most certainly, within my experience, *not* displaying either.)
