Squint Shot 122610
The northeast quadrant is shown in this particular squint shot, taken the day after the "Christmas in the Ville" parade. In a year's time, changes have happened in this block -- some for the good and some not so much. Maria's School of Dance is now located where The Decorating Center resided for 28 years. The entire floor space has been remodeled. The pharmacy is now working in conjunction with Health Mart and seems "healthier" than ever. Unfortunately, there are two empty storefronts -- a physical therapy service has moved out leaving the former Shady Lady (does anyone remember that) location empty and the building at North Second Street and East Grand River (formerly used by Maria's) now sits quiet.
