Why is water running out of this pipe?

I know Chester Creek runs UNDER the armory. Why is water running out of this pipe? Is there a stream of water the third floor too? What is the source of this water?

More importantly who are those women and why are they always standing in those windows?

These are roof drains that were installed last summer.  They are keeping the building dry until the roof is replaced during the full construction project.

There's a lot of history there, but I'm not sure if it makes financial sense to make it a usable space again. Somebody donated a million or more I read, correct?

Sundog, aren't you the editor of the Budgeteer, a news gathering organization?

@Tony D,

Looks to me like that's exactly what she is doing.  How else do you gather news other than by asking questions?

I would contact the building's owners and ask them, getting the information from the best, most authoritative information rather than ask random posters of a community blog, no matter how well informed they may be.

No offense, Sun Dog--I was attempting a good-natured jab, but that fails to come across in this type of format.... Hope no feelings were hurt.

Hi Tony, of course that would be the best way to get a correct answer, but posting a photo on PDD is just plain fun.

PS. One of my friends commented on my photo blog saying, "I think it's because lady number one wanted a shower."

If they do build (a hotel, similar to the plans that I've seen), Kim Ellerman's gonna lose his lake view.
