I believe this is the same power hungry tyrant who banned businesses from using bulletproof glass. Who the hell is electing these people!?!?!?

So elect democrats and suffer their version of forced aesthetics, language, speech written word, art and politics. Who needs elections with democrats in full control??.


Were not talking historical architecture regs here, we are talking government mandates to direct symbolism assignment and overriding personal preferences for a place costing you thousands in taxes and you don't have a say.


"we have to pass it to find out what is in it" generation of socialist democrats just want to take care of you..... and so many are fine with that. A travesty!


You want code words? gentrification was coined to mean wealthy white interlopers taking over a black inner city enclave, pushing the residents out. According to socialist democrat rules, that original definition is cast in bronze and to use it differently is a social crime. Unless a socialist democrat decides otherwise.

Some of those silly balconies jut way out beyond the property line and over the sidewalk, the bay windows are not just windows but part of a bump out feature, that seems to be the issue.

Bay windows are common in many Philly neighborhoods. Like bow fronts in Boston. Personally I like bay windows. They add a little interest to what otherwise would be monotonous flat fronted row houses. I can't understand why anyone would object to bay windows.

when she gets done banning bay windows, she can work on getting speed bumps to reduce drive by shootings. They are working on that one in Seattle. Plus food deserts where it is easier to buy a gun than a fresh vegetable:

Speaking in South Carolina last week, President Barack Obama argued that in some places in America it is easier to purchase a gun than a vegetable:
[A]s long as you can go into some neighborhoods and it is easier for you to buy a firearm than it is for you to buy a book, there are neighborhoods where it’s easier for you to buy a handgun and clips than it is for you to buy a fresh vegetable
Ah the looney left urban planners. At least they provide entertainment.

Now, I hate bay windows and would gladly see them die a quick death, but that's for my own personal aesthetic reasons....

I think they're silly, ugly, inefficient and dated in appearance.


Why?

just asking...I like them, I like the idea of a window seat to do some reading...a Cozy nook


I also like other 'Victorian' features Eyebrow windows, and Stained glass windows....Ornate and decorative designs were the hallmark of Victorian homes... I also like the octagonal and round tower , turrets, dormers, and wide wrap-around porches designs of Victorian (queen anne) designs.


Decorative railings and turned posts were typical of these Victorian porches that usually wrapped around at least two sides of the house. Ornate trim work around the porches included gingerbread cutouts and spindle work


I (personally) think these are some of the most beautiful homes ever made

I've never sat in a window seat that I felt was "cozy" - also, there are lots of bay/bow windows aren't large enough to accommodate a seat. They more often than not look tacked-on, or like a stylistic afterthought to me.


On a Victorian home, some of these things are appropriate and handsome. I don't believe the OP is referring to Victorian homes.
