I’ve worked at my current job for a decade; in that time, the restaurant around the corner has been out of business more than it’s been open. One of its most recent tries was a buffet place where you had to pay at the front door, before you’d even seen the food. And, not surprisingly, the food was awful. But at least it was all-you-can-eat.
I’m an urban planner by profession, so land use patterns interest me. This city block has a cotton gin and a church on it, which is…well, I’m not sure what it is. Uncommon, at least.
And, then, on the vacant part of the block are all these boats. Is someone over at the church anticipating Biblical-level floods? Are we thinking rising sea levels will impact us here, at our High Plains elevation of 3,500 feet? Is it an art installation? Is it some kind of housing program for homeless boaters? What the hell is happening here?
