North End: Northland, Sharon Woods, Forest Park, etc. tour

1. A mattress/bedding store, Morse Rd. near Sunbury Rd.
2. Transmission repair center, Westerville Rd. near Cleveland Avenue. Did not catch the name. Small garage in densely populated area of inner city Columbus.
3. ABC Liquor, Rt. 161 and Karl Rd. Good selection of liquors, spirits, mixers, and of course, beer. Will be busy with the upcoming holiday season.
4. Boomerangs Bar, 161 and Karl Rd.
5. Same location as photo #1, the mattress/bedding store. Neon makes matresses and box springs quite interesting!
6. Sizzle Marine boating and RV center, Westerville Rd. (3 C Highway) just south of Morse. The sign actually 'sizzles". Video to come soon.
7. Roosters, Rt. 161 and Cleveland Avenue. "A fun, casual joint". Pretty good wings. Try the Super Killers!
8. National Check Cashers, Kathy Run Lane (near Rooster's from above photo). I think if we collected all the neon signs from cash advance stores in Columbus, it would be brighter than Vegas. If you need a quadruple digit interest rate loan, come here. Pay it back in two weeks. Repeat process the next day. I have been trapped by these places, but sometimes, what are you going to do when a car breaks down and the bills still need to be paid and the kids still need food?
9. Debnet beauty supply, Beechcroft Center. Caters to the local African community.
10. Tan Allover, tanning salon in same strip center as beauty supply. Does not cater to African community I believe.
11. Mi Bandera, un mercado mexicano. In same strip center again.
All photos were taken with the digital camcorder still function the night of Sat. 11/24/07. Work was slow so I was able to grab a few photos while working. Bad me.
