  1. This store is still here, and the sign that says "Ukrop's Super Market" was still there until about a year ago. It's a supermarket, run by Koreans, and the co-owner was murdered last year.

    1. Yes. You're right this area is were I use to live in a quiet apartment community in the early nineties.I thought building and surrounding area looked familiar. I use to take my two young daughters to this store many of times. The owners were very friendly.I was sad to have heard about their tragedy. Things do change with time,whether that be for the greater good or bad. That spot will always have wonderful memories for me.
