FOR THE MEMORIES
As a Coventry kid living here in
the mountains of up-state New York I can't tell you how nice it
is to see a view of the city.
I wasn't born in Coventry but I
grew up there and I remember it being a beautiful city and I
have the most wonderful memories from childhood there.
I usually make a trip home every
other year and like most Coventry people I didn't like the
changes too much. There's a lot that should never have been
changed but the redevelopment of the lower precinct is long over
due - that was badly planned from the start and hopefully what
the developers have in mind fits in well with what the city
already has to offer.
There was what looked like a hot
dog stand in the precinct where there used to be a small part of
a red bricked building, which I take was part of a bomb ruin.
This small wall was incorporated into a showcase and I was very
disappointed to see that it had been removed and as I said,
there's now a hot dog stand there, and an ugly one.
It's things like that small part
of a bomb ruin that should have been preserved to let us know
where we were and where we now are. It was a piece of Coventry's
history,and a very important piece.
I still can't believe someone in
their wisdom would have it removed, such a shame. It was I
thought an important reminder.
Coventry is still a beautiful
city, and it's still home.
