Coconut Grove Playhouse; Bike Shop

The Grove has been in the news the last few weeks because of the property known as "The Bike Shop."

This building housed a bike shop at the time it was acquired by the Coconut Grove Playhouse, hence the name. It was used for a brief time to store costumes, until the roof "caved in" or developed a major leak.

It has been emtpy since the costumes were moved out, occupied only by squatting vagrants.

Because most of the building is concrete block, it's hard to see the damage, but this is the back door into the building, and it is typical of the condition of the wood throught the building.
