Broken Heart, with Rust


JWS Inc was apparently once a metal fabrication business located at 3528 Snelling Avenue . Its telephone has been disconnected, and a sign directs those doing business with Cedar Towing to use the Dight Avenue entrance. I presume, that Cedar Towing is now the owner of the building, although for some strange reason neither address is searchable through the Hennepin County Property Tax system, either online or by Hennepin County personnel in the Property Tax division. The metal sculpture on its Snelling Avenue facade remains. A writer for Minnpost was also taken with the sculpture in 2012, and wrote about it here: In the shadow of elevators, streets spawn artists, broken hearts
