I announced yesterday a print giveaway, so today I wanted to share the story behind the photo...
Ten years ago while on assignment for STL Front Page, Bob and I drove to Old North St. Louis for a very special celebration at the intersection of North 14th Street and St. Louis Avenue.
Over the years, plans came and went for the once thriving business district, known as the 14th Street Mall, that had declined drastically in the past few decades. Finally a consortium of residents, small businesses, the Regional Housing and Community Development Alliance and Old North St. Louis Restoration Group, moved forward with a $35 million project to redeveloped the vacant mall.
On a very warm, humid Thursday afternoon, July 29, 2010, it was time to celebrate the completion of the project with a ribbon-cutting for Crown Square and street festival.
Crown Candy Kitchen, located at 1401 St. Louis Avenue, was opened in 1923 by Harry Karandzieff and his best friend Pete Jugaloff, who brought their confectionary skills from Greece.
The family-owned business, now run by the 3rd and 4th generation, still features a nostalgic decor with a vintage jukebox, coca-cola collectibles and authentic soda fountain where they make world famous desserts. The travel channel proclaimed their 1lb. thick-sliced bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich as one of the best in America.
On May 18, the St. Louis City began allowing many businesses to gradually reopen with restrictions, including a 25 percent occupancy for restaurants. Many restaurants, including Crown Candy Kitchen, have opted to continue offering curbside service and take-out.
I'm looking forward to enjoying their famous chocolate banana malted and grilled cheese sandwich or the turkey bacon melt, or rueben ... Looks like I'm going several times to support this historic neighborhood family business and say hello to Andy Karandzieff.
This beautiful photo of Crown Candy would add a touch of nostalgia to your home or workspace. It's mounted on foam core (18" x 12") and ready to frame. ($150 value)
Winner announced Saturday, May 30th. Good luck!
