Description This photo shows the storefronts and townhouses along Wilson Avenue, near the intersection of Menahan Street. The storefronts appear damaged; many have drawn their metal shutters, though one such shutter has been partially destroyed. There are windows missing in many of the townhouses. We see "El Faro" as well as a sign for pizza. A few people are included in the shot, including one pedestrian and two men who seem to be lingering outside a shuttered storefront. A red car is also visible.
