the boomers really did a toll on our cities. fortunately denver has massively improved. it's still a shithole, but you can get around most of it without a car now. needs better light rail requencies (it wasn't uncommon to wait 40+ minutes to catch one) and the bus system there is utter garbage. if they can reign in the current challenge of massive fucking sprawl and instead build upwards it might not be so bad.
in that photo where the clock tower is, now it's all a pedestrian street with skyscrapers up and down. most of those cage lots were torn down.
of course, the city was great before boomers tore everything down for muh parking. so we're only just repairing the damage at long last. but it is what it is. if only we could put boomers at gunpoint and confiscate their estates to pay for what they did, we might finally see justice.
