While I was driving from Southeast Decatur north on Sixth Avenue/Alabama 31, I was horrified to see a grotesque apparatus installed on the northeast corner of Gordon Drive and Sixth.
I thought that lot was part of Delano Park, and it was a beautiful lot with a huge magnolia tree and several other pretty trees, but it now houses an eyesore. The lot is certainly in a residential neighborhood, and my guess is that it is part of the Historic District of Decatur.
I do not know what this monstrosity is, nor its function, but I cannot imagine how whatever group put it in was allowed to by the city, the Historic Preservation Commission, and the neighborhood.
Great way to beautify Decatur!
