No, it’s a new entrance on the back of the building where there’s currently just a blank wall.

See the posts immediately above today’s...

I did see the posts previous - - just thought perhaps they had recently taken down the art deco entrance and sealed up the wall. That would've been a crime.

Thankful that it is a different side of the building, and yes, it is definitely an improvement over a blank wall.
