Luckily for me, many Northvillians can crack a smile and take a little joke. Lighten up, life is short.

This is all good but the Mayor should also have the bridge altered into a drawbridge that the Northville folk can keep raised most of the time to prevent the rest of the universe, particularly our rancid politicians, from polluting the purity of their sanctuary.

Northville is fast becoming if not the the crown jewel of Fulton County and the region with its art culture, historic buildings, location at the entrance to the Adirondack Park and the Northville Lake-Placid trail, Art culture; many accolades to the new Mayor.

Architecture in the early 1900's, as a general rule, allowed artistic design on the faces of buildings, but usually depended on local building materials and local designers, who used similar techniques. Then came the era of Frank Lloyd Wright, who is probably the most famous in changing the way people think of buildings. Paolo Soleri, who drew on ecology for his inspiration, Kevin Roche, known for incorporating glass in his structures, opened up a vast new way to build and design. Therefore, preserving a historic district usually means preserving a type of architecture of an era. Northville has a rich history in architecture, and is a beautiful place to be in, because we can walk back in history, and not be impeded boring 21st century buildings, lacking any artistic design. Good for Northville recognizing this. If you want the Dollar Store, go to a strip mall.

I'm not poking fun at Northville, I think that it's a great community and I'm very pro historic district. This is just humorous curiosity. Considering inflation, I wonder if there were protests in 1914 about the new five and dime coming into town, after all today it's dollar stores.
