"The Holyoke center, a huge building by famous architect Josep Lluis Sert, was once under construction. The Andover Shop was also under construction on a small lot on Holyoke Street, just across from it. Often, Charlie would come by to check progress on his new building, only to find Sert himself with members of his design team using a scaffold on the Andover Shop’s site as a viewing stand for the huge construction across the street.
“That guy Sert was a real asshole,” Charlie said. “He’d be over here all the time just standing around looking at his construction site. One day he asked me what I thought of his building. I said ‘I like my buiding better. Now get the fuck off of my property!"
