Thank you for printing Myrick Howard’s excellent Point of View article “Houses & history” about the new house being built in Raleigh’s Oakwood neighborhood.
Coverage of this story in other media has tended toward the sensational, and having this informed opinion backed by clear historical precedent makes the issue that much easier to understand.
The complaining neighbors need to back down and let the city live and grow. If anyone prefers to live in a neighborhood where all the houses look the same, move to a development where all the houses were built by the same developer at the same time. There are plenty of those around.
