In bailing Michael out of jail for so-called ‘reckless driving’ on Delaware Street, we came by this beauty. The grey commercial building once had many beautiful arched windows. These have since been bricked in and replaced with casement windows. The ‘What?!?’ in this ‘hell’, is that they celebrated the replacement windows with a keystone lintel! (and then painted over it!)

Is it just us, or does the height of that light fixture make this building appear adjacent to the Interstate?

    I used to get my hair done on the ground floor of that building (in the current “For Lease” half). The salon looked like it had seen better days but the cut and color I received were really fantastic. It was a odd place to have a salon, in the midst of all those bail bond places. This was about 10 years ago.

    This bland front personifies “management for dummies” (and maybe on the “internal” management therein, if this bland front is any clue…). Using a standard cookie-cutter approach with no research into the historic nature of this building or its location is brainless, and speaks ill of the owners/managers of whatever “business” occupies this building. Its obviously (duhhh) out of place with its neighbors…far too much rank stupidity permeates this type degradation of historic structures all over town. Enough ranting; I’ll stop now!

    As a redeeming point for Delaware street you should stop into the crown liquors at Delaware and Ohio. Sure it is retail on the first floor, but they have made a lot of effort to maintain as much of the original building as possible. Check out the amazing basement wine cellar with original stone walls. They have some original photos of the building as well as its history on the walls in the store.

    Crown Liquors would be worth seeing….
