Long slated for a redo into affordable family housing by the Uwajimaja Company (which bought it in 2003 causing the eviction of its 75 low income residents), the Publix Hotel in the International District sits vacant still while people live on the street around its periphery.

I wonder what happened to all those evicted people?

Still a good evening photo.
