That sucking noise? Fabulousness leaving.

Some recycled buildings are amazing, like the conversions of former tobacco factories into cool, NYC-worthy lofts. But others fall flat, usually due to the sucking out of any charm, any character. Such is the case with the Reynolda Manor branch of the public library.
