The downtown area has changed a lot
since I moved to Indianapolis. Buildings have been torn down,
restored, and renewed. Many have been constructed
and many are being built now.
This building, in the southeast quadrant
of the downtown area, near Virginia Avenue
and Washington Street, has seen better days.
Its owners have worked hard to clean it up and to make it
another of the restored gems in its neighborhood -
and they have done it with humor, a facade of the past
reflecting the era of its surroundings
while remaining its own 1960s or so self.
