Hang an outdoor chandelier Downtown and call it “transformational”. The dissonance that illuminates as it hangs like a fib not a mile away from the Central neighborhood, with a poverty rate of 70%, will be nothing short of despairing. Said Daniel Boorston:

We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place.

We can do better. I mean, we have to.
