Most of them also look like they were designed by students at the "What *IN*THE*WORLD* is that thing?!!" School of Architecture & Design...

Wouldn't you just LOVE to see some of the architects and critics of the past, like John Ruskin, Henry Louis Sullivan, Cass Gilbert, or Lewis Mumford, critique some of these...contraptions??

Down the road from Concourse is Golden Mile Complex.
Looks like an old stadium from the front, and slums from the back.
