My World #75: Interesting Mural

31 May

This facade faces the Chinatown neighborhood.

And this side faces the North Beach (or Little Italy neighborhood).

I cannot avoid snapping at this building which houses some apartments upstairs and a Chinese restaurant downstairs.  I haven’t been to this establishment.  Yelpers are not too kind to it, though.

One time while surfing the net I read one article calling this building the Jazz Building, but I cannot find any other articles that call it Jazz Building.  Anybody else know why the mural and what it is for?

Hoping that you have a lovely Memorial Day weekend.

SHOW YOUR WORLD here.

    That is such a cool mural. I love the way it shows the man playing piano. I hope you had a happy memorial day weekend and a great week ahead.

    I have seen this jazz mural from when I used to live in the area and always wondered about it myself. Quite a project!

    What fun. Adds some colour and interest to the neighbourhood for sure.

    The side facing Chinatown could almost be painted on with the quality of your photography. This for sharing this beautiful building with us.
