Let's say there is a high school at the end of my street, newly built on a plot near the city line next to a now mostly vacant strip mall (and when that Hollywood Video dies its inevitable death, it may be completely vacant).
Come to think of it, it was a Blockbuster. It is closed, as is the former Dollar Store and Stop and Shop. However, there is a new check cashing joint, and an enigmatic, Repo Man-esque empty storefront that says "RENAISSANCE" in black on white block letters and a building permit scotch-taped to the front door.
