"People call these buildings an eyesore, but that's like looking at a dirty window. All you have to do is wash it. You take the stairs out back here; they're all iron. The sashes on the windows...they're just as straight as the day they were put in. And you won't find cords in these windows, but brass chains. You don't see that kind of workmanship today."
Will Bowles, tenant and postal worker
