The Denver North Star strives to show multiple viewpoints and will publish Letters to the Editor in both support and opposition when different perspectives are sent. At times, only LTEs with one view were received and the letters published represent that. The opinions expressed in letters are the opinions of the authors and do not necessarily express the opinions of The Denver North Star team.
Do you have an opinion you want to share? We welcome your letter.
Please send your letter of 250 words or fewer, along with your name and the neighborhood you live in, to David@DenverNorthStar.com. Letters must be received by the 3rd of the month to run in that month’s issue.
Preference will be given to letters focused on North Denver specific subjects.
If you’re interested in discussing a longer guest column, please email ahead of time to discuss that possibility as well. We look forward to hearing from you!
RE: Tennyson St
Tennyson Street between 38th and 46th once reminded us of Main Street in a small town in the big city. As so often happens, the unholy alliance between the developers and city government has destroyed the area’s character. “Gentrification” appears in the article, which always means that working class people can no longer afford to live there.
They call it progress but it has a way of biting back. Next, we’ll see the rest of the single family homes go, along with Local 46. Soon we’ll see nothing but soulless lumber piles resembling apartment buildings and closed restaurants as a result of the lockdowns. I have no solutions, it’s too late for this area.
