R.I.P. Lenny’s at Memorial & Harden in ATL

Before leaving Atlanta I wanted to leave one last collage at a certain place I must have passed a dozen times this last month.

“Lenny’s Food & Spirits” an abandoned building near the corner of Memorial Drive and Harden Street seems to have been a popular place when it was still going. From some of the artwork made on the walls it seems as though perhaps the property might have been sold to build high rise condos back before the housing crisis, and maybe the developers went bust before they could start building. But it was too late for poor old Lenny’s.

Just my speculation of course, but it looks as though some artists have been there to pay their respects and I thought I’d add my 2 cents worth.

I’d used the album “Burnished Brass” by the George Shearing Quintet as my canvas.
