A new and fancier building on Naples' main street is taking shape. Unfortunately, it replaces some of the small one-story buildings that added character. But, developers aren't done yet.
Now there is a big hole in the ground next door.
I am not opposed to development. Many times it is an improvement. I am just sad to see the smaller and quirkier buildings that housed local shops and restaurants being replaced with new buildings a bit too grand, uniform and big for the street, and that price out the little guys. An eclectic mix was nicer.
