    Default One Fifth Ave

    Nothing says trailer-park more than a cheap air-conditioner hanging from a window. Holes were also dug into the building to hide them.

    The top third of this building has been cleaned with the rest underway. I always thought the building was a dark gray brick. It is actually a cream colored brick. It must be forty years of car and truck exhaust and soot being removed. It's as jolting as the cleaning of GCT ceiling was.

    A couple of years ago, an attempt to clean the fašade was first attempted but it ended up being stopped with only small parts of the building being finished. For a time, I'd thought that the color of the masonry was intentionally two-toned. Guess I was wrong.
