Swamplot found this grandiose video of the apparently failed Park 8 project in Chinatown (why is it called that when there are far more Vietnamese people in that part of town?) that I've written about before. I have always been skeptical about this project.
The crane was removed weeks ago. I just noticed today that the signs are gone too. All that's left is some gang graffiti on the sheets of plywood that held up the signs.
Funny thing. I can remember the Chron's Nancy Sarnoff writing a gushing story about this project, and now all I can find is this. I think that Nancy should maybe visit some of these major developments when she is handed a press release? I am just an average Joe and I saw problems. I think reporters should report and not reprint press releases.
