well, yeah, but there's a lot more waterfront around the New York harbor

a Civil War era facility would've been kind of cool if properly taken care of

Glad to see that Downtown Detroit fell off the list of "most endangered historic places." http://www.nationaltrust.org/1 1most/ It was featured on the list as recently as 2005: http://www.nationaltrust.org/1 1most/list.asp?i=167 Not sure if it was the Super Bowl or the casinos that helped turn things around [just a lil bit of sarcasm].
