Smoke Shop

A man in a hooded sweatshirt stands outside of a smoke shot at night. In front of him is a garbage can, a fire hydrant and a sandwich board sign. To his left is his bicycle.

I wonder if cities would be a lot darker and less visually appealing at night if stores, like this one, with numerous LED signs didn’t exist? From my casual observations, East Bay suburban downtowns, are often dark and empty, and despite aspirations of safety, feel less hospitable.
