poor little building

This afternoon I had to go on a little adventure down K street to purchase a gift. I ended up right across the street from this little building, an old three story hold-out in between two larger buildings.

This little guy is where I went to get finger printed several years ago in preparation for some SSA clearance. I thought I had mentioned it here before, but searching for it gave me nothing.

So you get it now.

It was up some very precarious stairs, with a rickety old railing. There was zero air conditioning, oh and I had to write a check for their services. It was straight out of a movie. I remember being annoyed at the process, mostly because it was hot, and I was in a hurry to get back to the office. But now, looking at the poor little building, I feel sort of sad. The city could do with more old school townhouse like buildings. Instead, they just keep putting up more shiny glass covered cubes.
