Made in Jacksonville: Beaver Street Fisheries, Inc.

Thanks again for the history of Jacksonville. It makes me think of the current Mom and Pop seafood store that is west of Main St. Recycling and East of BSF on Beaver St. I believe that it's a two story brick structure. Stopped by and it's Discount Seafood est. 1944. Bought some shrimp.

Agree with the potential of Beaver Street, although if we leave it up to the City, the rest of New Town will be bulldozed to make way for a "new and improved" wide boulevard with palm trees and perrenial peanuts like they did in Riverside.  After tearing down pretty much everything in Brooklyn between Riverside Avenue and Park Street, including all the old warehouses near Blue Cross and any remaining homes, there is now new stuff going up, but the few remaining historic buildings lost and people displaced.  (Fire Station #5 is next, watch for it.)

Just saying.  There's a right way to increase the economic impact in the Urban Core, and a wrong way.  Jacksonville generally chooses the wrong way.  :-(

The Beaver Street Fisheries has a new line of hotdogs called 'Grillman's'. They are now the official hotdogs of the Detroit Pistons. When that Kayem deal runs out with the Jags, we know who to get. :)
