There’s an abandoned building near a busy bus stop in Lincoln Heights. Across the street is an empty lot, sometimes used for pop-up events, craft fairs, haunted houses, and other temporary functions. The lot is littered with palm-sized rocks, perfect for throwing. Over the years, passersby, perhaps in a moment of anger, or rebellion, or boredom, have chucked these perfect rocks at the windows of the building.
