I always bring visitors to walk along the water,see the Marine building, visit the gelateria, look at the torch. The doorway of this building is an art deco zodiac. It always amazes me.

If you like art deco you must stop and take a look at this lobby. It is beautiful and kept up well. It really harkens back to a more civilized age, really charming.
