On 14 street there is a vacant lot, fiercely saved for years for the use of rats. (other such lots became community gardens, but this is locked so no one can disturb their use). Someone wanted to make a statement so a whole rats housing project appeared there

There’s the rat Shack, resembling a Swiss Chalet

There’s a rat shaped home

There’s the Capitol which gives this whole thing the political flavor that made me include it here

There’s a home that has been already inhabited by a rat and it’s about to be abandoned – or maybe it’s the rent collector

and there’s even a pyramid with a crystal on top for the more spiritual rat

and there’s a Simpson’s Lionel Hutz inspired welcome sign:

IF YOU NESTED HERE, YOU’D BE HOME BY NOW

as an aside, last summer I photographed another exercise in futility in the same spot: guy trying to sell graffiti art next to a graffiti wall
