A reader brought this atrocity to our attention: "Who would DO this to an Alexander? And WHY???? This is worse than McMansionry -- there is no apparent reason -- no size increase -- just extremely bad taste. Who were these people? Can we order them to stop any future remodeling projects? I only pray this is a foreclosure and that they have no money to go on and destroy other architecture...Would it even be possible to attempt to restore this?" The market seems to agree.
