Is Clooney's home worth preserving?

May 11, 2003

The responses in Letters, May 4 ("Hopes for Keeping Musical Home as a 'Cultural Icon' "), are absurd. The home isn't a beautiful classic that should be restored, but a moldy old house needing an enormous amount of work. An ideal teardown in a great location.

Now let me get this straight: The national treasure Rosemary Clooney lived in this home for 50 years. Prior to that, another national treasure, composer George Gershwin, lived in the home. In other words, if those walls could talk, they'd sing. Talk about cultural heritage.
