Thanks for preserving the moment.
It saddens me to know that Lexington is losing another piece of its history so that an un-needed new skysraper can be built. Instead of perserving the history of Downtown Lexington, it seems to me that some people are only wanting to destroy it!

You live a sad life if this is all you’ve got. The Dame was poorly run, couldn’t pay its rent and sold out to the corporate world by taking a payout of $50,000.00 to end their lease early.
