Someone more "with it" than Jerry will have to tell me what this message says.


On the corner of Vineland Avenue and Otsego Street is a mysterious (to say the least) store that hasn't ever been opened while I've explored the area. It may have been a costume store or even a head shop. Perhaps since the sign over the door says "Last Chance" it might have been or still is, a bar. Whatever its use, the graphetti art on its delivery doors is amazing.

The shop with the pirate logo was Enchanted Divas. It was a pirate shop, literally a place to purchase items to decorate your house in pirate decor. Prior to that, the site was a shop for non-traditional religions. It sold crystals and other items.

Jan 2011. It hasn't changed. I live across the street. Somebody occupies it now but don't know who. Little activity. The walls are a favorite backdrop for photographers taking pictures of people.
