NPR Wright story

Post by Ed Jarolin »

This morning on the NPR Business Report there was a short news

story concerning the restoration of the the Ennis House, the

neighbors opinions on living next to something that attracts public

attention, etc.

Since this is not on the NPR web site (yet?) I'll hit the high and low

points. The restoration of a work of art is really, really expensive.

Some neighbors don't like living next to a crumbling building, because

it brings their property values down. Some worry that living next to

the restored Ennis will attract too many people and bring their property

values down.

Oh yes, many Wright houses have recently been bulldozed and

fully a quarter, or was it a third, are threatened.

Did I learn anything from this report? No.
