    as the site is now empty.

    And a number of conveniences have closed. In the last 2 years I've lost a bakery and a pizza slice shop and a barber (all of which I used occasionally) for ATM lobbies (which were already plenty).

    So, no, I'm not loving the changes in my neighborhood. We've seen a transition to big chain stores, like Urban Outfitters, a Barney's outlet, American Aparell, PetSmart and Trader Joe's.

    Some of course are quite welcome, especially Trader Joe's. But I'm not particularly happy to see small businesses disappearing for big corporate footprints.
