Page 17 / Sole survivor

Out of all the buildings in the Cord Meyer booklet only one survives! Hampton Street and 43 Avenue. That might not be the case for long as I have seen the property for sale for 1.8 million. The lot it sits on is quite large so I don't think anyone will be buying it to restore.

I use to live on that street!
Thank you so much for this, I've been missing Elmhurst a lot lately.

I live half a block away from that store and have been going there my whole life (just went there today actually!) It's amazing to see the history behind it. Thanks so much for this!
