Another Morning Call Infomercial
UPDATE: To his credit, Borick returned my call, even after reading this post and the comments. He considers the poll he conducted as part of an on going quality of life survey that he conducts in the Lehigh Valley, in conjunction with the paper. He feels that this point in time will be a valid benchmark to compare with public opinion after the arena is up and running. I explained my objection to the article, especially referring to the previous activity on the 700 block as a dead zone. In reality there was a lot of business done on that block, even if it involved a low income clientele. It was one of the most successful Family Dollar stores in the country. Although he considers himself an optimist about the changes in center city and the NIZ, he finds the questions raised by this blog legitimate.
