Art Institute Mural

This mural is huge. It's painted on the side of a building on Raymond Avenue, a couple blocks from Vassar College. This building used to house my favorite Chinese restaurant, The Fortune Cookie. They had a fire a year or two ago and they never re-opened. It was the ONLY Chinese place I liked up here...and the family's kids were friends with my kids. They moved away. Rumor has it they might move back, but I dunno if they'll reopen. The restaurant still says it's for rent.

Anyway, the mural is cool. There's another mural a block away that my kids and I helped paint, along with a hundred other people, ha.
