    As the debate about the future of the currently idle Dover Street School building in Bay View continues, we take a look at what the building was intended to look like and how it changed. An event planning Checklist Template is mandatory when you have been endowed with the responsibility of planning a party. Preparing for a party is a complicated affair as there are so many things to be taken care of and absence of a properly organized planning makes everything even more complex. Bestselling author Harry Mount thinks that the British sell themselves short when they fail to appreciate their architecture. He picks the best books on British buildings, and expresses his thanks that Christopher Wren didn't redesign London on a Parisian/New York grid system following the fire.
