While I was snapping pictures of this door (time elapsed: approx. 3 seconds) two vaguely menacing-looking dudes suddenly popped up from an
unseen entrance somewhere below street level, two police cars rushed by
with sirens wailing, a guy sat watching from a pick-up truck that was parked in a
lot across the street for no discernible reason, and something like 50 cars came down the hill and swung around the blind corner much faster than was prudent.
