Chasing Daydreams: 200 Carroll tenants ponder the past, anticipate future renovation.

A black and white sketch of a partially-done mural stretches across the back of the building at 200 Carroll Street, waiting to be filled with color. One part that has been filled in shows the large face of a woman wearing blue sunglasses. On her neck and shoulders are the words, “Don’t quit your daydream.”

Rose Badillo, owner of M&O Station Grill and one of the building’s tenants, said she often likes to come around to the back of the building and ponder over the mural’s message. Before she moved her business to 200 Carroll Street – a building that will undergo renovation starting in June – Badillo said she almost gave up on her “daydream.”
