"On Rose Street"
With many small businesses, churches, and restaurants, this street has constant traffic, but perhaps not constant fun. I think that this would be a nice street to live on, though it seems that there are a lot of run down places on this block without a lot of wherewithal to fix anything up. There are a lot of construction businesses on this street, which seemed a little strange, but it made me realize a trend that I had never noticed. In the uptown areas, many small businesses are in heavy competition, and sign-age and the way the store is maintained has a lot to do with business. What better way to compete than to be right next door to the competition, showing them up on clientele or quality of the store. Very good tactic, indeed.
