I took this photo just a couple of days ago when I made my periodic trip to the Triangle to check the progress of the Dumont (The building I’ll hopefully be moving into sometime this year). I was struck by the beauty of these derelict structures and really moved by the fact that I could see, in their present state, the many years of experience these buildings had. I could almost see the families that at one point lived in there. The kids playing out on the stoop, domestic noises pouring out the open windows. I became incredibly sad when I realized that soon, they’ll be nothing more than meaningless facades. Completely sanitized and devoid of any life whatsoever, much like the fate of many of Penn Quarter’s historical structures.
