In Eveleigh NSW on “Proposed demolition of the...” at 35 Henderson Road Eveleigh NSW 2015:

Matthew Jorgenson commented

I am very sad to hear that someone wants to demolish the Alexandria Hotel. This pub brings charm and a sense of community to the local area. As a local resident, I am normally pro-development. The area is growing and new homes for new residents need to be provided. But this growth should not come at the expense of our local icons such as the Alexandria Hotel. This pub is a piece of local history. It's unique interior is a reminder of the old days of Sydney, demolishing this pub is erasing that part of our history. The Alexandria provides a common meeting place for the locals of the area. It's part of our community and provides some real charm amongst all the stark apartment buildings going up all around. Don't destroy our connection with the past and don't take away our sense of community. It's a local icon and deserves to be preserved.
