I'm right across from Draper St, and I actually find it almost magical to walk down the street late at night. It feels like the opening scene of Blade Runner, where the rich people live in skyscrapers and drive flying cars, while the rest live at a dystopian street-level. Or if you happened to have played the 90s video game, Final Fantasy VII, the Well is like the Shinra corporation headquarters, towering over the poor inhabitants of midgar down below.Yup! The city likes to keep it as a historical novelty street with single family homes. Surrounded by highrises and skyscrapers. Maybe in the future they can find a way to zap it from this location to another dimension.
I imagine that the residents of Draper St are not very happy about it, but I have a feeling they'll be just fine. Their houses are still worth a fortune and at least we'll have some better outdoor spaces than before. I'm looking forward to The Well.
