How could you make the terrible idea to cut down a bunch of trees in Lincoln Park potentially a little more terrible? Hmmm...
How about by cutting down all the trees, except for twenty, which you just top, then allow them to become...Chainsaw carvings. This is, in fact, Sissi Bruch's big vision for Lincoln Park. Why do I get the feeling that if you loved the rusty Bob Stokes art downtown, you'll love the chainsaw creations that would result from such an approach.
Or, putting it another way: I have no doubt that enabling a chainsaw sculpture section of Lincoln Park would create a local "draw" that would easily be twenty times more popular than Nathan West's Boondoggle Beach. Easily.
A bear necessity? Probably not.
A necessity and tourist temptation? Probably not.
