Memory Avenue Revisited

Last year I took a stroll down Memory Avenue. I gave y'all the grand tour of my neighborhood through the years. Today I'm going to do something a little different, I'm going to show you an actual picture of what it looks like today:

7th Avenue & 2nd Street, looking Northeast, click on the backcover link to see the Southeast view.

Looking Northeast you can see a little cafe and Tarzian Hardware, which has been there forever. I truly thought that all hardware stores looked like that. Imagine my surprise when I saw my first Home Depot.

Looking Southeast, you'll see the weird defunct bar, Met Food, and a Maggie Moo's in the spot where there used to be a newstand until the owner was shot. Next to Maggie Moo's is Pino's Pizzaria (greasy, but oh-so-good) which used to be next door where there's now a strange sort of diner/burger joint.

Anyway...I used to live about a hundred yards to the West of where that man in the plaid pants is standing.

It's a shame all hardware stores don't look like that.

Very neat!
