Great look back. Cheers man. This site is kind of the lens through which I view the whole stupid city. You have turned this piece of the internet into a neighborhood.

Thank you everyone... the site doesn't work without so many people taking part in it, from leaving comments to sharing photos...I appreciate that camaraderie...

And thanks sophocles! But it was a neighborhood long before I set foot in it!
