2013-0923-StPetersburgPier

This postcard wasn’t mailed, but the cars look 1960s. The pier still stands…for now. It sure has had an interesting run in the past few months. It is still closed since May, oddly enough closing on the 4th anniversary of the Belleview Biltmore down the road in Belleair which is also still in demolition limbo. Right now the plan is to do the always time killing study to see about designating the structure as historic. This could put any movement of doing anything about the pier off for a year. In the meantime, the historic YMCA building, an architectural marvel, a few blocks away sits also in limbo. Limbo is a favorite tactic in preservation circles in Pinellas County.
