Dave McNair is an author and reporter who published an article in the Hook last week about the fountains on the downtown mall. What fountains, you may ask? That’s because the fountains have been largely ignored in recent years, and the once-beautiful structures have become invisible to pedestrians.On this January 25th segment of Charlottesville–Right Now! with Coy Barefoot, McNair talks about the privatization of the downtown mall, and what has caused the fountains to become defunct. Would they be too dangerous? Should we take the risk? Leave a comment, and let us know what you think!
