My old apartment looks out over Lambeth Field, which was a pretty nice perk


If they build this it would look at the back wall of a cinderblock building.

It's funny, I'm normally pro-building-cool-things and I tend to cast a skeptical eye at NIMBY objections. But this softball facility is, like, literally in the backyard, and seems like it is taking away the colonnades and field from the community and giving it to the softball team, with a sop to the community of "well, here's a new field for you." But the proposed new field is probably about half the size of the current one and the proposal does nothing for Lambeth residents who probably have to walk half a mile to wherever the administration proposes to stash their cars. (Good luck on moving day, by the way.)
