I think Main Street in Hamilton is kind of a lost cause for creating a beautified street front.
Ummm... do u even come to Hamilton??
ANY street can be beautified (even Industrial ones like Ferguson North) with the proper planning, landscape architects, so on...
Main St IS beautiful as-is... however if can be even MORE beautiful once they either convert to Two-Way and/or add the LRT!
When you're riding on the L, what does one see? Into the 3rd/4th floors of offices??
If you're riding on the "Main St LRT", you would see that cute lil shop you've never noticed b4 b/c you were zooming by in your SUV, or that nice restaurant you never noticed b/c you were too busy yelling at the lights b/c they weren't timed to you exact preference...
Get the Point, Retro??
