Quotes about the Old Neighborhood

“I have spoken to hundreds of people who mourn the loss of a sense of place tied to block, school, and neighborhood church. When you talk to them further, you may also find that they were busily helping to create the new rootlessness during the years of urban change. Many conclude there was no other way for things to end up. I’ll insist until the day they’re tossing spadefuls of city soil on my casket that we gave up far too easily, driven by a range of forces in the society we did not recognize. ”

-Jay Suarez, Author of The Old Neighborhood
