I'm just sayin'.

The Arlington Hotel

This little gem is at the heart of my hometown’s downtown.

There are signs in its windows, announcing to users that it is “Closed for Renovations.”

Meanwhile, the truth is that The Arlington has been closed–sans renovations–for years.

Every time I pass it by I feel a twinge of sadness. I can’t help but think about what it could become. In my dreams, it’s a vibrant space–a home to art and activities. Its stature alone reminds me of The Gladstone Hotel. This blog post offers a glimpse of what I love about that place.

There’s a lot of potential in my community. I hate to see it wasted.
