Heavy construction equipment arrives at the Baldwin villa

January 4, 2018

A construction crane and what seems to be a piling driver appeared today at the Baldwin property, signaling the start of major building work. We can soon expect the owner to begin pouring the foundation for a parking garage over the precise spot where James Baldwin’s desk once stood.  

The living room in which James Baldwin died is still standing, thanks to historical preservation laws. The new owner plans to convert this space into a luxury spa.


 It is not too late to stop this travesty! Intervention by philanthropists can change this outcome.
