I pretty much just liked the way the other buildings (or are they part of the same building?) framed the windows in the middle of the shot. Also, the lighting/shadows made the whole thing kind of ominous looking.

same building; pretty typical turn-of-the-century U court type of joint. definitely "ominous" looking at the moment (would be way less so if the condo association, as a whole -- it's really just one terrible slumlord standing in the way -- would be open to some basic maintenance).
