Dinkytown deserves more than death by brotel

Death by brotel is now the leading cause of homicides on the University of Minnesota campus.

Reader David Reinhart responds to Dinkytown is dying, one ridiculous apartment building at a time:

With rent prices unattainable for anybody that isn't some spoiled rotten white kid, I feel like these brotels that keep popping up are going to go the same way of Riverside Plaza (pejoratively known as the Crack Stacks).

Their build quality is absolute shit. I've been inside some of these buildings. Hollow doors, shitty paint, the same fucking granite countertop and stainless steel combo in every kitchen. Not to mention exteriors that are going to be hideous in about 15 years.

Keep that shit where it belongs, in the suburbs. Dinkytown has been dying for years, but it deserves an honorable death. Not this.

Poor Village Wok.
