Sleeping Giants

Location: East 31st Street & 27th Avenue South

This week, the burned-out area encompassing the former 55406 United States Post Office and its adjacent commercial buildings began clearance, all the way to Lake Street. Large construction equipment, a few remaining basements, a port-a-potty, all surrounded by chain link fence. At dusk on a Sunday there is no movement. The giants sleep, to awaken on Monday morning.
