The A&P lot has been a staple of my childhood. The place where most everyone worked at. Where the neighborhood did their shopping since the 1960s.
Since the fire in 2006, the lot has been home to only temporary fixtures. A carnival, a flea market, and as fleeting is its architecture is the use of the site. Like an eddy tossing up leaves in a corner of a yard.
It’s time for a better market for the community.
