Eyes of the beholder 

EYESORE: Some say it's the Clinton Library.
  • EYESORE: Some say it's the Clinton Library.

One man’s gold mine of tourism and a shining redevelopment in a formerly dumpy part of town is, in the eyes of several, an eyesore.
Several readers — influenced more by politics than architecture, we’d wager — have chosen the Clinton Library as the town’s best eyesore.

Other nominees:

• That auto graveyard on Maumelle Boulevard (many votes).

• Chenal Valley (see: one man’s vision of beauty, etc.)

• Hillcrest (ditto previous)

• Christ of the Ozarks

• Six Flags Over Jesus (presumably a reference to several big freeway churches around town).

• McMansions

• University Mall
