Nice positive post . Perhaps if you can't add something to the post you should rethink even posting! Especially given what a positive thing this is for the area!

Good. I love that some parts of the older city are getting makeover and rejuvenated.

I lived near that neighborhood, had friends in the area, and often walked down Park Ave. many times late at night. As school friends we safely hung out around there, and in Hanscom Park. That was years ago, since It's past my 30th HS reunion! I know Park Ave. as an area where most all of the apartments, and home were in decent to good condition. Yes I know the area has changed, I seen it decline during the years I lived there.

I was one of the first tenants to move into Park School after they renovated it. It was cool living there since you had a view looking towards downtown, CB, and up and down the river in both directions. I really didn't mind I-480 being right outside, got used to the noise just never got used to 7-11 being right next door. Strangest day on I-480 was when it went totally quiet, until I seen a cop blocking the Woolworth bridge, then GWB go driving by with a motorcade. No problems there really besides one night after grilling out on a small grill. Coals were hot still, so went for a walk down 29th st. towards Leavenworth. Turned around to head back and some lowlife is running down the sidewalk with my grill lid in one hand, bottom in the other. I only lived there a year before I bought my house there.

I can only hope that this is the beginning of the revitalization of not only Park Ave, but the area from Woolworth to St. Mary - 29th st. to the Field Club area. Yes I know, high hopes
