Fredericksburg ugly vs. Spotsylvania ugly
Today’s Spotsy & City Extra section includes a story about the fact that the barrier wall in the middle of Princess Anne Street at the train station is going to be painted. The wall’s fake, multi-colored stones have been deemed too ugly for the city’s Historic District. Here is a photo of that wall, courtesy of Matt Kelly’s blog (where you can find a little more commentary on the artistic statement this wall is making).
Just for comparison purposes, it’s interesting to note that this wall is considered ugly by city standards. However, just over the city limits in Spotsylvania, there is another wall that looks a lot more in need of a paint job than this one.
Just to be fair, a Spotsy official reports that there is a plan in the works to fix this wall, so stay tuned.
