Greeting all (former) bloggers,
My appologies, as I have not "blogged" for quite some time. How is everyone? What agreat article! Lots of information I did not know. These are exciting times for D. of G. street. What a wonderful addition, both visually and historically. I am anxious to see the final rendition....which, unfortunately will have to wait until spring.

I've missed responding to the blog, but have been thoroughly enjoying the blog updates. Joshua, the photos and info are really appreciated and the Daily Press article was well written, I thought. Really like the way the project is coming together.
