Rename Pine Street Apartments

September 7, 2018

This piece represents the opinion of the author.

Dear Editor,

I can only assume that the Pine Street Apartments were named for the magnificent evergreens that surrounded them on three sides, sheltering residents from loud traffic. For years, many students chose to live there because of the beautiful and quiet environs.

Perhaps “Fresh Asphalt Apartments” would be a more fitting name now. Neither “Advanced Auto Parts Apartments” nor “Bath Road Rush Hour Traffic Apartments” is a bad choice—so long as we wish to honor the area’s scenery.
