EPILOGUE, 28 YEARS LATER
I decided after twenty-eight years, it was time to make a return visit to the Cass Corridor, now renamed Mid-Town. I felt I owed it to the people who now live there to find out what it was like to call Mid-Town home. Did the name change reflect a true improvement in the quality of life there? Had crime in this new Mid-Town been reduced or was it the same old Cass Corridor. Who lives there now and how many of my old friends and neighbors still remained?
What had happened to my old haunts and what was the status of the great old buildings that many had tried so hard to save? What about my old friend Morris Krispins? Was he still living there and what had happened to his beloved apartment building?
I had waited twenty-eight years to return, but now I couldn’t wait to walk those streets again and talk to the people who now live there. To them, their home is “Mid-Town,” but to me, it will always be the Cass Corridor.
