Antonio Corazzina was enjoying a respite from Chicago's still chilly weather. In town for United Airlines, he made his way to the Pier on a courtesy red bicycle from the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront, where he was staying.
This morning he was waiting for the bait shop to open, so he could rent a fishing rod "and spend a couple of hours" fishing in Tampa Bay. Corazzina was surprised to hear that the inverted pyramid silhouetted against the cloudy, early morning sky was to be demolished.
"For my thinking, it's perfect like this," he said. "Nothing to change."
