More than a Market

Elmwood and North Streets

North Street was a vital commercial artery that served these neighborhoods. Residents shopped at small department and dry goods stores, pharmacies, food markets, bakeries, fruit and confectionary stands, creameries, restaurants, and bars. Well into the 1950s, it had a lively nightlife, with stores open late to serve a population that worked long hours.
