25th & 3rd Ave [SW Corner] (April 29, 2012)

This building has been a hotel for over 100 years. Ye Old Carlton Arms Hotel. During Prohibition, the lobby served as a speakeasy. Later, the hotel was a hangout for "madmen, junkies, ex-cons, pushers and hookers, transvestites, drunks, women who beat you in exchange for your pay, a new generation of hippies, and life's lost and lonely." Today, it's a much nicer place, "where the walls explode with color and art."                       CLICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE
