The only well-maintained publicly-owned century-buildings are the schools. While the municipality knocked down so many of Hamilton's greats during the crazyness of the '50s and '60s, the board took care of those structures. Look at a list of the schools of the lower city and you'll see many of the most beautiful old buildings in the city. Now, after decades upon decades of maintenance, they want to throw all that away. On one hand, I do have some sympathy for a school board that is effectively saddled with a massive inventory of white elephants. On the other hand, what kind of guy looks at a beautiful, fully functional structure like that and says "let's knock that down".
