'Renaissance Row' Is Reborn

Today even Mike Flannery came out to see the rebirth of 75th Street:
It's a strip known as Renaissance Row, and that name has never been more appropriate than now.

The street is back open, after construction nearly caused some of the businesses to shut down.

It's a 12-block stretch of East 75th Street and is home to one of largest concentrations of black-owned and operated retail businesses in Chicago.
Read the whole thing or watch the video here!

BTW, I added some links in the sidebar under local businesses for all those establishments that are located on 75th. Check em when you get a chance!
