Re “A Couple of Suggestions” letter by Anthony Mosley that ran on page 4 of the Nov. 4 issue:
From the historic Lindbergh Forest neighborhood it is easy to walk or cycle to two grocery stores, the post office, the library, drug store, Disc Exchange, Book Eddy, the Pease-King-Tut-Candoro Marble Vestal business district. Ever-expanding Ijams is also within cycling range or a very short car ride. On the way back from Ijams we can stop at the Roundup, or continue down Moody and end up at King Tut’s or at any of several Latin storefronts/restaurants nearby on Chapman. The legendary Frussie’s sandwich shop is also on Moody. I’m leaving other establishments out, I’m certain. We’ve also got Big Lots and three thrift stores and many other small businesses (White’s Farm Store, Colonial Hardware, Stanley’s Greenhouse, for example) where you can still GET THINGS DONE. Down the road is the Seymour Farmer’s Market. LOCAL food, keeping it real.
Please enjoy the restaurants we now have now and please keep our South Knox Waterfront (I forgot, UnderDogs is already down on the waterfront, Mr. Mosely!) businesses intact and safe from upscale “development.” Go Holston Gas! Never thought I’d write that.
