We don't make it up to Empire Blvd. too often because we don't really drive and it's a horrible street to walk down. With all the talk about the Roller Rink's imminent closure (maybe), we decided to take a hop, skip and a jump down our least favorite local truck route.
Photo #1: We might be way behind the ball on this one, but we just noticed this wine and liquor store on Empire and Rogers. In and of itself a new shop for booze isn't so special, but upon closer examination you'll notice that this one does not have bullet proof glass, the substance that isolates the hound from his liquid prey. Pretty classy.
Photo #2: Recently installed plywood on what appears to be a gutted building. A sign of something new to come?
Photo #3: Something was knocked down and/or cleared out from this lot, the building permit indicates something about a maximum of two stories, commercial only. Again, a sign of something new to come?
