The first sign of despair is taped to the smudged glass doors.

It reads: "This door is out of order."

Inside, the pop machine is adorned with two "Out of Order" signs, just for good measure. It hasn't worked for years. There's a dented garbage can, a shuttered snack bar also closed for as long as anyone can remember and two sets of lost mittens sitting forlornly on the ledge against the dirty windows. A lone employee, tattoos on his neck, works his BlackBerry on a bench, dying of boredom.
