Brick and Response

I spotted this abandoned post office building the other day, and it seems an appropriate accompaniment to your deco diamonds.

It was on 3rd Ave. in Brooklyn, which is a funny street. It's resisted all attempts at gentrification, and remains stubbornly deserted among the pricey condos going up in neighboring Park Slope and Boerum Hill. Walking down it on a bright, white-hot day, you almost feel like you're wandering around in L.A. or something.

i really like the worn away marble, or limestone, or whatever that is.

sounds as if that's a block you should stick to only walking down on white-hot days and not dark nights...
