This shop space had a restaurant, then another restaurant, and another, just a long series of dining establishments over the last few decades that I’ve been watching. Then, with the January 2020 new year, one moved out, and we began watching that space. Soon, dumpsters showed up and workmen closed the sidewalk and raised dust…for quite some time. Then the dumpsters and workmen disappeared, no restaurant opened, and all has been quiet for months.
I can’t remember if these ornate frames are from the last restaurant, or the almost-restaurant. Now, they’re just waiting…to be wanted?
