Do you remember….
Where the East Side Used to Be?
SNA joins with the Mt. Hope Neighborhood
Association for our second annual joint neighborhood
History Night on Tuesday, November 24 from 7 to 8:30
p.m. at the Church of the Redeemer, 655 Hope Street.
This time around, we invite neighbors to create their
own history of the East Side by calling on Rhode
Island’s most important navigational aid: our memory
maps of where vanished neighborhood landmarks used
to be. Do you remember the Jenkins Street or Summit
Avenue Schools? Did you shop at Miller’s Deli or Carl’s
Diggin’s? Did you bowl at Down Under Duckpins
(which was where Sullivan’s Lanes used to be)?
Last year’s event on the history of North Main Street
was very well attended. One of the highlights was the
wealth of memories shared by audience members. This
time around, we’ll devote the entire program to
audience participation. Please join us on Nov. 24th for
a lively exploration into remembered neighborhood
stores, schools, restaurants and organizations.
