If you missed the feature in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on Nov. 15 about Gina and Travis Sheridan’s Wright Street home in Old North, don’t worry, there will no doubt be plenty more where that came from. Gina & Travis recently closed on the purchase of the home they had been renting, thanks to mortgage financing from Midland States Bank. And, long before they officially owned the home, they had already started spreading the word far and wide about how cool Old North is and have been active participants in numerous efforts to keep Old North moving in a positive direction.
The article in the Post starts with an opening line that sounds a lot like what we keep telling anyone who’ll listen: ”Great things are happening in Old North St. Louis, thanks in part to residents like Travis and Gina Sheridan…”
You can read the whole article by clicking HERE. And to see the short video that accompanies the article, in which Travis proclaims that they live in “probably the best neighborhood in all of St. Louis” and where he gives credit to the work of Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, as well as the support from David Noble of Midland States Bank, click HERE. And if you see Gina or Travis around the neighborhood, be sure to thank them for the wonderful things they keep saying about Old North.
But that’s not the only good press we’ve received lately. Shortly before that piece ran in the Post, St. Louis Public Radio posted a story about the ongoing progress in Old North, which included comments and observations from longtime and newer residents and businesses in the community.
Among the individuals quoted in that piece were residents Joe and Susannah Eisenbraun, Phil Valko (both a resident and director of Washington University’s Sustainability Office), Dr. Annessa Blackmun of Blackmun Footcare, M.K. Stallings of UrbArts, Eric Woods of Firecracker Press, Veronica Holden (resident and owner of La Mancha Coffeehouse), Tom & Gloria Bratkowski, and Sean Thomas of Old North St. Louis Restoration Group. Other neighborhood businesses, nonprofits, and amenities mentioned in the story included Crown Candy Kitchen, Kennedy’s Pet Shop, the Sustainable Land Lab projects (the Mighty Mississippians, and Sunflower+ garden, the Chess Pocket Park, and the planned Bistro Box), Headhunters Barber & Beauty Salon, and the neighborhood’s many community gardens.
