Little Jimmie, Big Against Blight

"Little" Jimmie Reed and Mt. Airy USA are joining forces to reduce blight on Germantown Avenue, one building at a time. In Mount Airy, "Little Jimmie's Bake House, directly across Germantown Avenue from his Little Jimmie's Bakery Cafe at Springer Street, is the glue that holds a formerly desolate block together," reports the Daily News. "The new bake shop was the most blighted building on Germantown Avenue," said Anuj Gupta, executive director of Mt. Airy USA. Now, the bake shop, and the cafe across the street anchor the block of Germantown Avenue between Hortter and Springer streets, "which has had its share of bad times." [Philly.com]
