RIP Social Security Gorilla

There goes the Primate  
Gorilla Mural by Nicky Davis 

As reported by Swamplot earlier this week, the Smith Street Gorilla is no more.
It met its un-maker when the former Social Security Office Building at 3100 Smith Street was torn down to make room for an additional Midtown Pearl development. 


Scene of Destruction: Corner of Elgin and Smith
