Putting on a Patriotic Front

leave a comment »


Some owners of vacant buildings try to give their property a look that makes it less obvious that the building is not being used.

I suppose there are people who have made a hobby of avocation out of studying such things. If so, they might have some insight as to what is the most popular way to dress up the windows of a vacant structure.

One strategy is the patriotic look. Put a American flag in one window and some red, white and blue bunting in the other and you not only have two colorful windows, but you also can show your support for America.

With relatively new siding, this structure doesn’t look quite so vacant.

This building is located on Main Street in Ripley, New York.
