Babylon News & Muse

There has been a lot of response to the column of Aug. 3, most of it on Facebook. The majority of it was in favor of saving historical buildings, but there were a number of people who were not in agreement. Many are friends or clients of Ken Rogers, who has a construction firm in the Village. Some of them thought I was attacking Ken, which was not my intent at all.

Kenny contacted me because he felt I had erred in saying that the buyers of the properties mentioned had promised to fix the buildings. Going back over my notes, he may be right, so I will retract the use of the word promise. But each of them said they would restore the buildings, which they subsequently demolished. So I apologize for using the incorrect phrase.

News and Muse will be back next week.
