America’s Fading Main Streets
“I consider the Main Street project a reflection on what we’ve lost as a culture and nation. More than just a physical location, Main Street represents a state of mind, a civility and decency that has gone missing in the United States, replaced by a soulless existence of big commerce where we’re pushed to buy ever more things but interact with others around us less intimately, if at all.”
