Looking down 8th Street across Avenue A... by thewatersphotos

Looking down 8th Street across Avenue A...

Cars parked so there are people, but likely inside, since there were few on the sidewalks. Most of the buildings/dwellings downstairs at street level are store fronts. Many along here are still vacant or vacant again (it seems local stores open and close frequently when "things don't work out"). Along here are a Pub/restaurant, clothing store and other shops and offices.
Above several of the stores are apartments. Some have access from behind, in the alleyway and a couple have access from the street via "secret" doors.
Observation...the building on the right seems to be "leaning". I'm not sure if it actually is or that is an effect of the lens. :- )
A lovely sunny street scene, a nice mix of different buildings and good to see some signs of people getting out and about.

Lovely buildings.

Looks like a nice town. The buildings are leaning because of the lens.

Nice sidewalks.

Interesting mix of buildings here....pretty much the same in our high streets, some empty shops, the town centres are struggling these days, too much shopping online! It looks very quiet, empty pavements!

Looks and sounds quite a bit like our town - old and newer - love those clouds

A pleasant small Southern town.

I’m loving this tour of your town! Can I steal this idea??

I am really enjoying this feature and sorry to hear about the vacancies it seems to be the same in so many small town downtowns.

Next time you go, you'll have to check out if the building is actually leaning or if it was the lens! Could be either or both! My High Street is now looking much busier since they opened up the shops, provided you wear a mask. We also have lots of empty shops at the moment though where they have not survived the gap in trade.

@happypat Thanks, Pat! Yes, the virus has slowed some traffic, but folks are much more willing to buy on line that travel anywhere. The few eateries that have opened don't seem to last long.

@milaniet Yes, I imagine many towns are like this! Thanks, the clouds were perfect for photographing.

@randystreat Thanks! Indeed.

@carolmactx Thanks! It is fun to "show" the town. Of course! Please share your town!

@bubblequeen So glad you are enjoying it! It is fun for me to "show" our area as well.

@casablanca I will certainly have to do that! Yes, shops open and close regularly.
