Dandelion taking over

Quick shot of a dandelion plant trying to take over a now-abandoned garage. Sevelle’s Auto Garage, sold by the family, now slated for a pocket park and multi-family housing, just like so many old businesses around here. The days of all these gritty businesses clustered around the train lines on North and South Ave in Westfield and Garwood is numbered. Nobody wants large industrial businesses, of course. Stuff like metal bending, textile mills, ets. The time for that is LONG gone. Now the commercial businesses are being scooped up by landlords who have decided that rather than have an Auto Body Shop, a Lawnmower dealer, or other such businesses, we need more housing.
