Selective preservation of history (6)

(6th in a series on Martin Tower)


While I recognize the need (or desire) to demolish Martin Tower in order to redevelop the 50+ acre site on which it stands, it also raises the issue of the very selective and at times ignored preservation of history in Bethlehem. History is Bethlehem’s singular most important asset when it comes to marketing this city, yet building upon it seems to be secondary to convenience.
