When I set out to walk down this block, I had blindly selected it based on the fact that I had heard people talking about its unique outdoor cafe seating and cobblestone surface. Imagine my disappointment when I realized I had picked the wrong segment of Stone Street (the part everyone talks about is two blocks away). But, I had made my choice and went ahead and took photos of this depressing block.
The block is fairly typical of this neighborhood – towering buildings with decaying bases and dirty sidewalks. The rare moment of sunlight trickling through is immediately curtailed by either construction canopies or rows of parked trucks. Both ends of this block are dead ends with huge buildings blocking thru-traffic. Walking down it you almost feel like you're on a movie set (you know, the type where you can't see infinitely down the street, usually due to the impracticability of building a ridiculously-long set?) that's easily escapable.
