Yup, it's historical alright. Just like Sanford will go down in history as the most welcoming place for people wearing hoodies.

Hey Sistrunk, you can hire George Zimmerman to patrol the newly renovated and beautiful historical part of Ft Lauderdale as soon as he walks.

Since it has become a worldwide tourist destination, you want to make sure the streets are safe for the international vistors.

B B King is going to perform on Sistrunk.

Hope he brings his bodyguards with him.

Renovation is not going to change what goes on around Sistrunk, the money they have spent could of been better spent on hiring more police officers to patrol that area....

No, we hate it cause it's a filthy, disgusting run down eyesore.

So stop with the black thing, that excuse just doesn't work anymore, you've played that out long ago.

Face it, the people that live there are slobs. Plain and simple. We'll see how long the revitilization lasts.
Yeah Right

So it's been several years now and how did the public's tax dollars improve the area?

Is the public flocking to the area to sample the local fare?

Are tourists intentionally visiting since the revitilization?

Has the economy improved?

Or is it the filthy slum that is always was?

Just a follow up, how's the renovation of ol' Sistrunk comin along? Is it now an international tourist destination yet?

Or is it still a run down slum?

So nearly eight years later nothing has happen to the 'Flagship' project to revitilize the slums of Sistrunk.

Oh, wait a mintue, something is happening. The property is going into foreclosure and the taxpayers lost over a million dollars and that's not counting loan after loan and a grant from the CRA which guess what...is another taxpayer funded organization.

Way to go! Freeman's dream is just another Sistrunk nightmare...for the taxpayers. How dumb are our politicians? Did they and do they now really believe that tenants would occupy space in the absolute worst area in Broward County?

Cut the losses now, auction the property and learn that no one, no one, is going to the ghetto.

Just checking back on how the Flagship program is working out for Sistrunk.

So how much revenue has been produced after spending millions on the ol slum? Are the tourists flocking to the area?

It appears the only ones who made out is the folks in charge of the project who stole the money.

But hey, that's how things always roll in the hood, stealing is just the way of life there.
