16. Photograph taken beneath balcony. The removal of the balcony seating required additional support for the balcony, which was used as shelving by the last tenant. On the left are 4"x4" wood posts, spaced approximately every eight feet and supporting 4"x8" girders. The rolled steel columns, on the right, which are supporting ten-inch I-beams are original. Originally, a cigar stand was located in the area behind the shelves on the right. The framed single door, flanked by concrete blocks, serves as a fire exit to 7th Avenue. It replaced the original double doors.
