The extra buck is for the texture and sense of place the mustard yellow graffiti wall provides your photos. I’m sure that’s what they were thinking.

Went out to dinner once in the Italian Market. There was a lot down the street, empty. We always parked there for free.
One night we go and there was a homeless guy sitting there collecting money for parking. We paid him.

This reminds me of a parking lot in Fort Apache the Bronx.

Thanks for reminding me of one of the things I love about old cities in this country — especially old poor cities: Painted signs. Detroit is, like, a festival of painted-on-walls signage, much of it misspelled, all of it interesting:
“We do not buy or sell stolen tires or rims.”

Open Air market? That sounds fun. Do they sell scarves there?

I think I parked in this lot once, but it was in Wales at the time. Looks just like it.
