Edward Hopper's 'Nighthawk'

An interesting article about Edward Hopper's (most famous) piece Nighthawk

This piece always captures my attention for a long while whenever I see it.  The cafe is so mysterious as are the patrons.  I always wonder and think about their stories, what brought them there and why this cafe was open so late.  I realize now that I've read this article that this place is fictitious, but I still love it when artwork inspires you to think about the subject, imagine things about the people in the painting and beyond.
