Re: Boston Arts Academy | 174 Ipswich Street | Fenway

It looked like a solid building. Why build new when it could have been renovated?

Not surprisingly, things improved dramatically since that time. Boston, NYC, DC are three examples of cities that made dramatic comebacks from some very tough years!
