In this urban setting, it's a pleasure to hear sounds of the past mixing with the pervasive sounds of the present. While there are the constant rumblings and shoutings of the construction site across the street, they are punctuated occasionally by the slow, thoughtful clop-clop of a horse, ridden down the street by a policeman, patrolling the old-fashioned way. While there is a constant background roar of traffic, cars, and buses, there is also the rattling of a train passing by, sounding much as it would have a century ago, when this old building was new, built brick by brick.
