The RTD takes a look at the controversy surrounding hanging your clothes out to dry:

“I call my clothesline my solar dryer,” said Lisa Taranto, a green activist and director of the community Tricycle Gardens, who hangs laundry outside her East Broad Street home. […] Opponents, however, see clotheslines as flags of poverty that create eyesores and devalue property. “They’re unsightly by most people’s standards,” said Jeanne Bridgforth, a Realtor with Long & Foster in Richmond. “It gives an atmosphere of decline. You don’t sense you’re in a well-heeled neighborhood when you see people hanging their laundry out to dry.”
