    Didn't even say what they'd be replacing it with. Obvious bias. Shame on you and your noise pollution.

    For 20000 signatures, I'll take you to Robert Johnson's real gravesite.

    They're going to replace it with profound musical history. So no worries, everything will be cool.

    Honest answer: Gutting the most famous street in Rock Music history and putting up more lame commercial real estate.

    Change of use of 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 20-28 Denmark Street, 4 Flitcroft Street and 1 Book Mews to provide 4,308sqm of office floor space (Class B1a); 2,959sqm of private residential floor space (Class C3); 239sqm of affordable housing (Class C3) and 2540sqm of retail floor space (Class A1).

    You know, I did the whole "historic locations associated with great figures" thing. I went to the house where my favourite philosopher wrote most of his work. I went to the school where my favourite poet did part of his studies and even found a ditch he was supposed to have passed out drunk in. I then went to see graves and birthplaces and favourite walks of this or that or the other figure I admired...

    End result? They were a bunch of dirty trails, schools, and graves. Nothing too exciting.

    The toilet that Habermas shat in is still just a toilet. Smash it down and put in a better one.

    Update: http://www.westendextra.com/news/20...pt-save-tin-pan-alley-being-turned-theme-park



    Before the plans were given the green light last year, a string of objections were lodged by a coalition of the Bloomsbury Association, the Covent Garden Community Association, the Seven Dials Trust and the Soho Society.

    They said: &#8220;One of Camden&#8217;s key objectives is that the internationally iconic music based nature of Denmark Street remains and is enhanced.&#8221;
    Other objections from residents said upper floors, used as music workshops and repair centres, would be lost.

    They added: &#8220;This development is more like a theme park and the area will lose its famous character with its important historic links with British jazz, rhythm and blues and punk movements.&#8221;
