So if you pass a new building going up or a storefront being renovated, we will be forever grateful if you would snap a photo on your phone and email it to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Similarly, we appreciate your comments underneath the blog posts themselves. And, in the meantime, you can follow us on Twitter at https://twitter.com/BrownstonerQNS.
