  Hard to believe a place can just die like this...
How alive was it then.

  You've got to remember, that it was active in your grandparents' time. My mother is turning 80 this year, and she told me that she remembers the workers hand rolling steel on Mill Street--this probably would have been in the 40s. She said it was the last hand-rolling steel mill in the world, and that was how Mill Street got its name.

  That's what I thought too, until she told me how the street got its name. I just wish I could travel back in time and talk with my grandparents--my grandmother was born in '89, so she would have been 16 or so when the flour mill went up in '05; she would have been in her mid-20s when the fruit warehouse was constructed--she probably watched it being built. she lived her whole life in the Village from '89 till '62; she never lived anywhere else, to my knowledge. I can only imagine the stories she could have told about the place....
