Bottle Car in Steelyard
As I wrote in the journal page, there was a lot of controversy when they'd built Steelyard Commons, with it's Wal-mart, Home Depot, Target, Old Navy, and such. This piece of land was the home to steel manufacturing that had closed down over the years. People were upset, because essentially, stores that sold cheap foreign made items were moving onto land where people had lost their jobs in large part to cheap foreign made items.
Now, you hardly know that there was a controversy. People are down there shopping all of the time.
