Another day on Hewes St.

As I continue to frequent the area of which I wrote my first assignment about, I have noticed a similar form of demographics that takes place in that area.  The commune where my friends lived is no longer there.  The old trucks and storage bins are cleared out, the pallets have disappeared, and the...
