“I grew up around here, across the street. I grew up in that building, right there. If they tear it down, they ain’t doing nothing but moving a different group in and then they’ll move a different group throughout the rest of the West End. It’s a good thing for the city but is it a good thing for us people?  I’m gonna miss it. I grew up down here. Everybody’s gone. Everybody I’ve been knowing for forty something years was over here. I’m gonna miss hooking up with all the people. Everybody would get together on July 4th and Thunder over Louisville and hang out at the park. It’ll be people that you haven’t seen in years but everybody from Beecher Terrace and Village West would get down here and hook up. I’m gonna miss all of those days.” - Dro, Russell
