McDonald's, Preservationist

The fast food chain McDonald's is most frequently associated with suburban sprawl, ho-hum architecture, and food that's godawful for you. Well, they haven't done much to make the food healthier, but, in at least this one case, turned to preserving a historic structure. Faced with intense community opposition to a tear down, McDonald's transformed an existing colonial home into a hamburger outpost while retaining the classic architecture. Bravo. [Gothamist]
