This place apparently at one time was the place to be. It has long since been boarded up and condemned. Interesting thing is that this is pretty much in the middle of downtown surrounded by banks, highrise buildings and two major sports arena's... the area has plenty of wealth but for whatever reason this quaint little place just didn't work out. This is a little more minimalistic than most of my work, but I thought it worked well and was appropriate for the theme.

    ...this is where it happened...they met here on days of the week that ended in "y." the rooms were cheap but the cumulative expense became an issue. neither had a partner, but, neither could go home.
