The coronavirus pandemic may have slowed or closed some businesses, but it hasn’t dampened the community spirit of merchants in the 300 block of North 2nd Street in Jackson Ward.
On a recent Saturday, people double-parked briefly to pick up carry-out orders from restaurants on the block or to just say hello to business owners, who also came to their storefronts to check on one another – all while practicing social distancing. Apart together. Community, no matter what.
