Architecture historian Andre Ferrari bemoaned the loss of historic buildings in this section of an article in the St Helier parish magazine Town Crier

For a certain generation, the Hue Street area will always remain part of Lost Jersey, an entire quarter of 18th century houses, lost to the mania of total clearance for 1970s redevelopment. Had it been respected and saved, it would now be one of the town's most charming areas, a place for tourists and locals to enjoy.

That loss has rather blinded us to the other interesting areas of town which have been devastated, long after Hue Street was recognised as a terrible mistake.
