This actually wouldn't be terrible if it materials on the addition weren't so blah. If it was copper, or some sort of textured metal, I think we'd be singing its praises. However, when you go cheap like that, it shows.

There's an artsy / hip neighborhood in Miami that has a ton of graffiti and street art that I found to be awesome as well...I just don't remember the name of it.
