Culture on the Cheap
Lipstick on a Pig Part II: Vomitus ‘R’ Us
Homes R’ Us: I made their acquaintance September of 2007 when I took the below photograph of 100 Jefferson Street. This is one of their “developments”.
Despite the fact a stop work order had been issued for this property, men were quite busy working on these promised two family luxury homes.
Feeling nostalgic (with the new year and all) I thought it would be fun to see how things were shaking in big bad 2008. So I looped by there this week and checked it out.
The finished product was pretty much what I expected.
Is it just me or does the word “luxury” suggest a measure of scarcity and/or exclusivity? If so, wouldn’t a bunch of cookie-cutter row houses slathered together with stucco be the opposite of luxury? Just curious.
