@chpn will try to add this to our Public Art Tour. But there are already 2 @edtrask murals on our tour. May have to rename it the Trask tour

doesn’t Tom Brickman own this piece of crap property? why doesn’t he improve it? it’s a great space for something like a teensy coffee shop….shame that it’s literally rotting to the ground.

The owners are squatting! Just imagine this space as a coffee shop, upscale corner store a la Shields, or a small sushi shop. Somebody step up and let’s increase pressure to make this corner better for th neighborhood!

Coffee … sushi? You’re joking. Naw, this place wants to be a barber shop and nothing else.

Martin, I respectfully disagree. We have enough barber shops and hair salons already. In the 50’s this was Nebs Inn, a popular neighborhood pub.

But, as you can see, there isn’t much left of this building. With current building code requirements/zoning ordinances being what they are, it will be a challenge for anyone to figure out what to do here and turn a profit. I’m not saying it’s impossible; it’s just gonna take some hard work, imagination and funding.

For now, I’m thrilled that the mural is up. It’s beautiful.

Is this a project for the Kellmans? In the meantime, I’m loving the artistic addition to the neighborhood.

Martin,
Your cynicism is exactly what our neighborhood doesn’t need. I’ll also go so far as to say that it smacks of racism.

We all got your barber shop reference. These days, you don’t have to utter an epithet to know someone’s true heart.

Our neighborhood is diverse and changing for the better.

Hey UMC,

I’m thinking that you are out of line on this.

I’ve been following Martin’s flickr for years. His appreciation and eye for the architecture, spaces, and historicity of this neighborhood is obvious.

My take on his words is that it was based on the size and scale of the building, and perhaps as an applied sense of historical community use.

If it’s last use was a restaurant, then you can remodel it and make it into another without having to do too much in the way of building code. Alamo made it work. Now if you change the use of the building then you have to start worrying about how to make it ADA compliant and egress compliant. Tearing it down and planting a garden would even be an improvement I would support.

@9 – take off the Al Sharpton glasses. Not everything is about race. I can see why the OP may have thought this looks like a classic barbershop architecturally.

This neighborhood’s never going to move forward as long as people continue to assume all their neighbors are closet racists.

#9, what a pathetic comment.
