CoRK West

In 1926, the Atlantic Match Company was one of the original businesses located in what is now known as CoRK West. Ceasing operation in 1937, Atlantic Match Company was a manufacturer of match books. In 2011, the warehouse was converted into CoRK. Today, the seven occupants of CoRK West maintain sculpture, painting, mixed media, and illustration studios and galleries.

Very cool. Free Parking! I'll exit on Stockton to head west and take the scenic tour through the backstreets of Jacksonville's past.

Most vistiors to King Street, including me, just stop, shop & dine in the Post & Park blocks around King.  Would be great if there could be more artistic ways to encourage people to go towards these studios. 

First, MetoJax and others help by letting people know these areas and people exist.
Second, the area should provide positive street art and signs to encourage people to wander a little farther down King that what most people currently do.

This area could be better served with more housing for artists to live as they work and play creatively.
