A Changing City

Once New Westminster was one of the best places for antique stores. They fought for space along Front Street. Sadly, the public lost interest in old treasures, and most of the stores have closed down.

I wonder about the old buildings too. Some are worth preserving, but can they win against the new towers beginning to dominate the skyline?

One thought on “A Changing City”

  1. I hope they will keep the old building. They have so much history and give soul to the area. Maybe it’s just me, some modern buildings are sometimes looking bit empty and soulless, although not all of them like that..
