Over time, buildings were boarded up as people followed employment elsewhere. Yet, it’s excellent location was not to be ignored. Today, efforts at revitalizing the area, which is ideal for an urban environment, are underway. New constructions are going up alongside historic properties and turning the area into one poised for growth.
