It's hard to see here, but that door and glass were put in place quickly and crudely by the last tenants to provide some light. The whole frame comes out easily, and above it all is a steel overhead garage door.

It only took 3 weks for me to put my bed together, and I still can't find the sheets. We did the worlds worst packing job leaving the old place.

We had a little impromptu party / rock show last Friday, which ended up lasting until Sunday night.  My new youngster 18 year old neighbor Lorenzo thought he could hang with the big boys.  He thought wrong :)

Note the burnt wooden beam.  This building was once a sugar factory in the 30's and 40's and it burnt with 29 employees trapped inside.  Lots of ghost stories to go with this story.

George is a cool totally laid back old lenscrafter, and lives in space as well.  I'm told he gives rent reductions for bands that cover Johnny Cash songs too!
