WHAT'S that Metamorphosis thing just west of Chinatown?There's a big parking lot in front of the Renaissance Marriott on 9thStreet. The parking lot spans about one city block (going west to 10thSt). In the center of the parking lot is a concrete walkway that islined by fake, plastic grass and tall, metal polls holding signs that
are bent to slightly overhang over the walkway. On one side each canvas sign it reads, "Metamorphosis" and on the other side is a painting or a photo of some sort (each sign has a different picture).
There is a small garden on the north end of the walkway and a colorful entranceway on the other. And the parking lot, while large, black and boring, does have fun, chopped up green glass that marks each row of parking spots.
