Those are very cool buildings! Thanks for posting that. Most people detest those architectural styles from the 60s and 70s but I'm confident it will ultimately hold a special place in or hearts and in historical memory.

^ a few things from that most unfortunate 1960s-70s era will hold special places, like the loring greenway in downtown mpls for a random example off the top of my head, but far and wide most of the structures like that fire station are utter crap that will rightly be leveled and rebuilt over. or at least i would hope so. however, none of us alive today have a say on that!
