Naive Bastards / by Ben Riesman

Ben and Catherine, circa May, 2008 having just bought the wreck that was once the Charles Maas Brewery.  At this point in time, this captures two of the most naive, idealistic and soon-to-be-schooled bastards that have ever picked up trash in North Philly.

Had we known how much work it would be, how much money it would cost us, how much blood, sweat and tears would be shed, Would we have done it?  Hell no.

Would we do it again?

Hell yes.  As it turns out, the combination of naive idealism, bravery and hard work does pay off. You rise to the occasion. The truth is, the building found us, and turned us into the people that could take care of it.
