Nice. Much better than looking at a parking garage.

Pretty cool idea.

A local guy put up a huge concrete wall around his property. His property borders a busy street. Further up the street the city put up similar walls as a sound barrier for neighboring residential properties. Since this guy didn't benefit from a city built wall he must've decided to make his own. Anyhow, he then had local graffiti artists decorate it. Looks really good. I think they change the designs every so often.
