The corner store in a dense, rowhouse-dominated neighborhood was a glorious asset. As I child, I had the luxury of three within a block. There were two drugstores, each with soda fountains, and a classic grocery-delicatessen. There, you could buy a can of tomatoes and a package of TastyKakes and learn the neighborhood news. Some of the proprietors and employees often had the status of beloved neighborhood figures. So when I heard of an effort of re-establish a corner store in Remington, I was heartened.
