Thank you. The hills save us. Without them, St. John's would look like many other cities of its size: beautiful at street level but, from any distance, little more than a handful of ugly mid-rise towers.

EDIT: An update, picture from last week. Still surprisingly little progress. And now Hurricane Leslie has set them back. I assume the scaffolding has been destroyed and some of their less permanent work has been blown off because it was vicious downtown. The entire length of Water and Duckworth was closed because of flying debris from "downtown buildings".
