Taoist Arts Center

I was walking east across East 9th Street on April 9th, when I noticed something peculiar:

Taoist Arts Center.

According to the sign above the cellar doors, this is the location of the beloved Taoist Arts Center.

Here is a close-up:


But where exactly is the entrance?! Is it the wooden door to the right? Is it the cellar?


I looked up Taoism on Wikipedia, and I found this:
The ambiguous term wu-wei constitutes the leading ethical concept in Taoism. Wei refers to any intentional or deliberated action, while wu carries the meaning of "there is no…" or "lacking, without". Common translations are "non-action", "effortless action" or "action without intent".
If you ask me, piling up all the garbage on one side sure is intentional — maybe the Taoists are the ones who littered!
