The bricks are back

Forget the solar eclipse next month; a truly rare sight has emerged right here in Pittsfield. The bricks that once lined many downtown streets are now visible again thanks to the milling projects on Allen, Federal, and School Streets. Should the bricks make a full comeback on these downtown streets? If anything, it would save money from having to put down a whole new coat of asphalt. The rustic look could calm traffic further and help the back streets of downtown stand out as a destination.
