Item description for On the Downtown Mall by Gary D. Kessler...
On the Downtown Mall celebrates the vibrant center city of historic Charlottesville, Virginia, with thirty-six integrated short stories, a gallery of both contemporary and vintage photography, and a historical essay. Charlottesville was home to three Founding Father presidents. In the bicentennial year of 1976, its seven-block central Main Street-once a Native American trail, surveyed by Thomas Jefferson's father as a gateway to the American West, and the starting point for the Lewis and Clark Northwestern Expedition-was bricked over to create a commercial pedestrian mall. This urban renewal project has been so successful that it has been named by the Pew Partnership for Civic Change as one of the nineteen "Solutions for America." The success of the Charlottesville Downtown Mall is not so much a result of its architecture, location, and amenities as it is of the homogeneity within diversity of the people who have congregated here for the past 25 years. This book reflects the spirit of those people.
