Every few Saturdays, I visit the 400 West Street Studios for market day. You never know what vendors you'll encounter, and it could range from handmade soaps to pulled pork, wild mushrooms, and always herbs. BUT. Across the way is an old warehouse that has seen far better days. There is something compelling about the scars, rust, and weeds that embellish this structure. The roof is all but missing, and chains prevent you from climbing the rusty metal stairs, but like people, a building with a messy story is far more interesting than one with none at all.
