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.

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

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