Flatiron Building

On Portland Street, I just call it the flat-iron building. It's really one of my favorite structures in the city. A friend of mine, an old timer, Ray lived in one of the apartments here with his mom. I road the bus with him, early mornings, when we both worked for the city at Evergreen Cemetery. We got teamed up summers cleaning gravestones. Working alongside him, I learned a lot about the city's history, and I learned a lot about LIFE! He's been gone awhile now... Thanks Ray!


  1. Our teachers come in so many shapes and forms, at different times of our lives. Ray definitely sounds like one of your early teachers, Birdman.

  2. mi piace molto la scelta dei colori. bella foto.

  3. What an unusual looking building. I can see why it's one of your favorites in town. And, I can only imagine the conversations one has while cleaning tombstones in a cemetery. Interesting indeed!
