Chris et al. 

Everything has a cycle.  New Yorkers lament the fact that Palisades 
Amusement Park (long an NYC landmark but actually in NJ like the Statue 
of Liberty), has been replaced by a housing development. 

Seriously, the viability of museum collections is a troublesome issue. 
New administrators (like the educator who took over the AMNH while I was 
there) or the Small banker who has taken over the Smithsonian, have 
agendas which do not emphasize, and often conflict with scientific 
research, systematics, biodiversity, etc.
