the pattern is seen time and again in american cities; a faltering, even blighted, neighborhood, is turned around by a wave of unlikely pioneers, ARTISTS... and to the list of usual suspects who carry the moniker, artist, there is an obligatory compliment of restauranteurs,antiques afficianadoes, innovative educators, and architects. toledo`s old west end and adams street-uptown neighborhoods are perfect examples of this phenomena... it has been said that` if you scratch the surface of an old west end resident, you wi;ll find an artist`, and by definition, many see their residency in the old west end as part of the sustained , and growing, turnaround of one of america`s most fascinating central city gems...and in recent years, more effort has been directed at expanding the turnaround of the victorian-era homes of the historic district, to include an ever-widening circle of streets that surround the old west e

Another option for a space downtown would be in the Lasalle Apartments off of Huron or on the corner of Adams and Huron.

As a downtowner, I would certainly appreciate a fantastic grocery option, especially Phoenix Earth Food Co-Op.
