Some of us like Jack's building

Recently, a couple living in a semi-secluded enclave at the extreme southern end of Clinton Avenue expressed their feelings and conclusions in such a way that if carefully read indicated that everyone or nearly everyone living on Clinton Avenue agreed with their summation. Nothing could be further from the truth. I know of at least six other people living on this street, some with children, others not, who have an entirely different reaction and opinion of Jack's Electric building at 14 Clinton Ave.

Here we have a local businessman going to a lot of extra trouble to make a pleasant looking building. From what I have observed and experienced over the last nine months, the size, shape and height of the finished structure has not changed since the outside was finished last year. The height is no higher than the surrounding buildings nor as imposing in overall dimensions as the building that houses Baker's Pharmacy. Also, it is not as ugly as the High Tides Trade Center building, which quite frequently causes me to have to walk out into the pathway of moving vehicles because of cars parked on both sides of the street at all angles. Children of the town frequently are riding, walking, scooting and skating by this area at different times as well as walkers. So far, there have been no bad accidents in this area.
