      I was amazed when I walked by that building earlier this year. I feel so in-the-know now :) Brilliant framing!

      It is not often that one gets to see the word defenistration. Thank you for the picture and the wonderful word.

      Quoth the Chronicle:

      "It looks like the old Hugo Hotel, that odd, decrepit landmark on Sixth Street at Howard Street, has finally reached the end of the line. Last week the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency announced it has begun the process of taking over the Hugo through the use of eminent domain. It will probably be demolished for space for affordable housing."

      Great Shot!

      I have used it in my Armchair Travelogue and have given due credit to you.

      Hope it is OK with you.

      The travelogue is a non-profit ads free blog which I have created as a pastime and I do not derive any monetary benefit from it.

      No problem. Is it still there? I keep hearing that they're going to tear it down any time now but it keeps hanging in there.
