Is your city or town littered with abandoned storefronts (while new ones are being built every day)? I’m not even a “green” person and this kind of thing drives me nuts. Why can’t retailers take over an already-established storefront now and then?
I got on that soapbox to provide insight as to why this story from Slate Magazine thrilled me. An abandoned Walmart storefront in McAllen, Texas has recently been refurbished into an award-winning public library.
Do you know of a similar story? Has a forgotten building in your area been reborn? Tell me about it below.
