my old building


this is not current but today i was walking past a building where i used to live so it made me think of this.

when i first moved to london, i lived in fitzrovia on newman street, right off oxford street, for about 7 months. a few days before i moved into the building, banksy did created one nation under cctv on the side of it. when the property guy was helping me move in, he told me thaat as soon as this had been done, the property value went up hundreds of thousands of pounds. it was impossible for me to walk home (ever) without having to go around tourists taking pictures of it (and i am not exaggerating).

not too long after i moved out. they painted over it. crazy.
