Isn’t Change Good?

On Smith Street there is a tired old row of posters screaming for a moratorium on local development.

Why do people feel entitled to keep things the way “they” want them and not make something new and better?

Isn’t the status quo necessarily couched in nostalgia and not something that evolves with the needs and realities of the community? I’m not surprised Brooklyn voted for Clinton over Obama, accepted conventions over innovation–ok, I’m stretching here but I have to admit I love their playful signs in bold colors.
