LICH's building at 385 Hicks has two entrances. One, only partially shown here, is on the right, and is regularly used by LICH personnel. The other, on the left, seems to be an unused garage. As this picture show, it is surrounded by debris, weeds flourish, and some trenchant grafiti seems to enjoy tolerance from the LICH administration. The door does not seem to have been cleaned, let alone painted, since the days of Mayor Jimmy Walker.
Remember that this building stands in a residential block of Cobble Hill where private owners take pride in both cleanliness and property values.
