Just So We All Remember....

Another view of Mars Bar to help remind that much of what we know as our downtown neighborhood , including both good and bad , is disappearing . The Continental will end tomorrow night , at least as a music venue , and CBGB will be gone for good as of October 15 of this year. These places once loomed large on the scene and were then , already , as now legendary institutions . I know that all things change as time passes and that what was important and popular once-upon-a-time , often becomes less so with time's passing . My question today is , what is the value of those new things that replace these old shapes and forms with their legendary pasts and still possible futures , and whom do they serve?
