People around the world revere Detroit's Konk Boxing Gym, home of legendary -- and still extant -- trainer Emanuel Steward. Yet somehow Detroit's government has managed to moth-ball this gym, tossing out Steward's still-thriving operation, sending it to a Gold's Gym in Dearborn. Kronk's is the type of place that holds tourist and residential appeal for Detroit: it is (or was, and would be) a point of interest for people considering a visit, or considering a move, to Detroit.
I see this kind of misstep also in New Orleans, which you would think would enjoy fine formal appreciation of its historical masterpieces. But not so.
