Wabash Neighborhood Center
I'm wondering how many of the people upset with Eureka's Stop and Shop Market opposed Teen Challenge's bid to move into the old church in the same neighborhood? They're just a few blocks apart.
Stop and Shop is the neighborhood center for the Wabash Avenue area, it seems. Always people hanging out around there. Problem is, when the neighborhood is the armpit of Eureka, you get mostly the riff- raff hanging around.
I've never been by there late at night when they say it gets real bad, but it seems to me it got a little quieter there when they got rid of the pay phone outside the store.
They did get rid of that phone didn't they? Seems to me no matter when I'd drive by there you'd see people hanging around or talking on the phone. I don't recall seeing that phone for some time now.
But, it's the neighborhood. I don't know that the one store not too far away from it has many problems. The one on F street a block north of Wabash, what is it; D&V Market? Seems pretty quiet there.
It's the neighborhood, not the store, seems to me.
