Last chance save Hangar One
Original post made by Walter_E_Wallis, Midtown, on Jun 25, 2011
This is my last desperate plea. Do not destroy this icon for trivial reasons. However much the storm runoff from the hangar might be toxic, it in no way presents a hazard either to people or even to the biosphere. The runoff all collects in a basin and is then discharged into the bay, with NO DISCERNIBLE HARM!
If the runoff were harmful, the cost of continuing chemical passivisation would be a small price to pay to keep the structure. There is NO WAY else that this building can harm anyone, and this mindless obeisance to an over-broad regulation, a kind of zero tolerance gone mad, boggles the mind.
I beg of you, re-institute a hearing on retention of the hangar in its present condition.
