Scene: Bishop Street Rant
Downtown’s loss, and gain, changes our view.

We know things change. We like the look of the new generation of Honolulu’s high-rise apartments. We like the idea of housing lots of people close to town so they don’t have to drive in from the suburbs. Hell, if we had $2.89 million to spend on an apartment, we’d be the first in line for The Pinnacle’s penthouse.
But still ... the mountains! It will be a long time before we stop reflexively looking up Bishop Street to see them. Given enough time, though, we’ll eventually forget they were ever there at all.
