E & L Food Mart, which this blog publicly called out as a classic North Minneapolis "inconvenience store," click here, and which burned down April 28, click here, and also here, is now a pile of rubble.
Unlike the rubble from Broadway Liquor Outlet, which was recently hauled away, the "thuggy rubble" from E & L remains. One of the commenters on my blog summed up how residents of the area feel in the following mildly-profane rant...
So now the "Thug Store" exists as a large pile of shit. This gives our neighborhood a really shit hole look. How long will that pile of shit exist before the City of Minneapolis decides to haul it all away? The "Thug Store" shit pile is now a twin of the shitty "Crap Hole" located a few blocks west on Lowry Avenue. The "Crap Hole" has been there in it's radiant shitty "Crap Hole" glory for more than a year. Just think of all that putrid stinking trash rotting away in the "Crap Hole" and all the rotting food being munched on by filthy city rats in the "Thug Store" pile of shit. YUK!
The other "crap hole" being mentioned is the one at 1900-1904 Lowry Ave. N. (That's not its OFFICIAL address, but I don't want to get into that right now)
Residents are wondering when this MESS will be ADDRESSED.
