Andy's Angles: Live Here
The building at the middle of the picture is the Connel Building on North Washington Avenue. At one time, it was filled with stores and offices. I remember walking into a lawyer's office there, one of the few remaining back in the day. It was a trip back in time.
After millions and millions of dollars worth of renovations, businesses and offices are back on the lower floors. Apartments above.
It's apparently a vibrant place. I've spent many a morning on courthouse square. People and their dogs are always coming and going early in the day, walking around the square, grabbing a coffee (the people, not the dogs).
I miss the big downtown retail days, but they're not coming back. Living downtown appears to be the answer to a city's survival.
