People in Downey and the McDonald’s hold different opinions about how to deal with the first McDonald’s restaurant. On the one hand, the residents in Downey think the building should be saved because it is a cultural symbol and gives them good memories. On the other hand, the McDonald’s says the building should be torn down for two main reasons. But some people in Downey as well as some local historians think that these are just excuses for changing the history. In spite of this, everyone hopes the people of Downey and the McDonald’s will soon find peace.
