The Unlandmarks Map will reveal and detail historical injustices. It will show the rent-raising which closed down minority-owned businesses, the murals which were painted over, the unique houses which were knocked down for bland concrete apartments, the jazz nightclubs lost to the Civic Arena.
It will also reveal high points – industrial achievements at a scale that might not be seen again, bustling neighborhood shops, art from an earlier age.
Buildings, businesses, public art, noteworthy trees — we want to hear about it all. We want to get it all down in one place that everyone can access. We want to make a free and open record of those historical landmarks, and the stories people have there.
