I have to admit, I moved to the area well after this building had fallen into disrepair. But, it’s a bit of a landmark on William Street. The current plans have it being torn down sometime this year and replaced with luxury townhomes. I’ve tried to photograph this building a number of times, but they always turn out a bit too abstract. I don’t know how I feel about the townhomes yet, but to be honest, the space needs to be used.

I spent some time walking around the building, shot a few frames, and found some unlikely fruit. Thanks for stopping by!
