The town slogan, on the sign as you're leaving north, says "Let us Brighton your day again!"

Midtown Demolition

Cheery green sidewalk bridging Not so cheery bridging... Backs of buildings exposed... The ghosts of once occupied rooms Digging into the shattered bones... Nomming away at the walls... New vistas open up... The last survivor on the block...
