I explored buildings and vacant lots in Syracuse, New York that are for sale or lease. In our economy there are hundreds of such properties.

The state of availability is a poignant one. When a person says they’re available, it means that they are looking for a new romantic relationship. These vacant buildings and sites are also looking for new life.

I am attracted to the humble paint jobs that cover up graffiti, as well as the tagging itself. Often these structures appear to have been made without much concern for design: a certain amount of covered square footage was needed, and a building was thrown up to suit.
