What Should Occupy Verrilli Bakery?
'Occupy This Space' returns!
It's a space that appears frozen in time.
A sign indicates the business is open for customers. Two cups of coffee rest on the counter, never to be sipped again, while waiting for fresh-baked loaves of bread to be bagged and rung up at the counter.
The space formerly home to Verrilli Bakery has been vacant for a while. Located at the corner of George Street and Martin Luther King Avenue, it shares company with several other vacant properties in that area, including just down George Street, right before the Market Street Mission Thrift Store. Unlike that carved out shell, the Verrilli location fronts a relatively busy thoroughfare, in an area in need of reclamation of lost commerce.
So, in this special one-off edition of "Occupy This Space," we're asking: What should occupy the old Verrilli Bakery location? Chime in below.
