Tin Man

The Tin Man is still here as of May, 2021. He's on top of a family-owned company. They told me that this is the third one on the site, the last one having been "kidnapped." The American flag formerly held by the man was gone on my visit. The neighborhood is still not among the best.

I would check out the Tin Man in the daytime, as this area is not the greatest at night!
