 I grew up coming to this place, as a young kid my father would bring my brother and I to watch the mexican lady make tortillas from scratch. I remember being mesmerized by watching her make the tortillas.

Things are different now. The tortilla lady is gone, but things change, i’m ok with change. Vendors come and go, so do people. Some hate gentrification. Others accept it and move on. I still enjoy coming here, guess that’s enough for me.
