My Downtown: Grace Richard

What makes Downtown unique is its neighborhood feel.  I “took a chance” 16 years ago and bought a building, rehabbed it and moved into downtown when the perception was that downtown was dangerous, full of homeless people, etc.  It never was – it was just sleeping.  While it took a while to wake up, I have watched the metamorphosis of the area and enjoy every new resident, restaurant and shop.  I’ve met a lot of wonderful, energetic, dedicated people that have made my life richer.  Just like 16 years ago, everyone you meet is friendly and says hello – it’s just that now there are more of us!  Come see for yourself.
