Spring 3-1978


Here is another picture of downtown Ybor City on 7th Avenue. The first brick building on the left is Demmi’s Market, a small grocery store which is a favorite among locals for a slice of pizza in a lively atmosphere. The building behind Demmi’s Market is Louie’s Deptartment Store which is unfortunately no longer standing. Central to this street are the many cultural and historical aspects it is home to. In 2008, this street was named one of the “10 Great Streets in America” by the American Planning Association.
