Our Patricia Calhoun didn't think much of the New York Times' take on the 16th Street Mall's thirtieth birthday, marked by an event featuring an appearance by Mayor Michael Hancock, seen here.
However, another local endorsed the less-than-laudatory Times review.

I lived in Brooks Towers for two years...the NY Times column was on the mark. When the Westword's piece came out...I thought have these folks ever left the city....the 16th Mall...literally needs hundreds of billions of dollars worth of revamping to make it a top city contender. AND here I put my two cents in toward that accord.
