Praise for Old North’s “edifying restoration and renewal”

Missouri Historical Society President Bob Archibald used his commentary on St. Louis Public Radio (90.7 FM) today to celebrate the revitalization of Old North St. Louis.  With a quick reference to the neighborhood as home of the much-loved Crown Candy Kitchen and a review of the community’s many years of decline, Archibald praised the passion and persistence of the area’s residents for bringing the neighborhood back to life:

“But some neighborhoods refuse to die. Thanks to the determined efforts of people hanging on in Old North St. Louis, Crown Candy Kitchen is in the midst of an edifying restoration and renewal. The enthusiasm of this re-emerging neighborhood is palpable. It’s been a slow process, not yet complete but moving with deliberation and good judgment.”
