Berlin Wall Section To Make Way For Development

BERLIN, GERMANY - MARCH 04: Artist Thierry Noir, who has painted a section of the East Side Gallery, points at a cut made by a construction company before work on the longest remaining portion of the former Berlin Wall was halted on March 4, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. A real estate developer is planning to build a 14-storey apartment building between the East Side Gallery and the Spree River and needs to remove the Wall section in order to allow access to the construction site. Protesters managed to temporarily halt the dismantling of the section on March 1. Critics, including East Side Gallery mural artists and Spree River embankment development opponents, decry the move, citing the importance of the East Side Gallery's status as a protected landmark and a major tourist attraction. The East Side Gallery is approximately 1.3 kilometers long. (Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images)
