To the editor:
I read the letters from Ninette Sadusky (“Silberberg, Smedberg made right choice on Ramsey Homes”) and Sammie Moshenberg (“Ramsey Homes represent legacy of Jim Crow”) in the February 25 edition of the Alexandria Times, and the news articles about the vote on redeveloping the Ramsey Homes buildings.
I agree with the Moshenberg letter, and my suggestion to Ninette Sadusky and the other Alexandria residents that feel that we should preserve these architectural treasures is that they should offer to swap living quarters with the people who now live there for a month or so. I think they might be able to find a tenant would accept the trade.
Given the vote to rescind council’s original decision on the project, it looks like city councilors are having second thoughts about their actions. If it turns out that the redevelopment is approved, then the opponents can swap living quarters until actual work begins.
