As Union Station Turns Two, Readers Disagree: Is It a Dream or a Dump?

Union Station is celebrating the second anniversary of its rebirth this weekend. Since it reopened in July 2014, the landmark has changed the face and pace of downtown Denver — and the fun's just starting. This weekend, the station will host a resurrected international buskerfest, as well as its weekly farmers' market and other entertaining options inside and outside the building — including restaurants both new and improved. Says Carole:

The upgrades sound wonderful. Union Station is a jewel for Denver. I love seeing more and more things coming to this exceptional public space.

But not everyone's a fan. Responds Robert:

Union Station is an overpriced dump!

Richard has a solution for that: 

Wow, Bobby. You need to hang out on the 16th Street Mall. Sounds like it's more your speed.

By the way, the 16th Street Mall will be hosting another free Meet in the Street this weekend. What do you think of the mall? Of Union Station? Where will you be this weekend?
