North Philadelphia

I ventured into North Philly last week with Hajj Flemings and Shawn Lee. What I saw there reminded me of how I grew up. I saw little places with crowded layouts that spoke of “emergence” more than careful planning. And with lots of customer care and pride so that there could be only happiness to shop in such “real” surroundings, versus over-/under-designed interiors that seek to speak of authenticity.
