The El Moore has company on Alexandrine

Theta Tau

As the Midtown neighborhood once known as Cass Corridor continues to flourish, there are definitely some welcome new neighbors moving in, but we’re glad to see some of our old friends who still remain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Built in 1898 at 624 West Alexandrine, the El Moore has seen a lot of neighbors come, then go, then come and go some more. As the Midtown neighborhood once known as Cass Corridor continues to flourish, there are definitely some welcome new neighbors moving in, but we’re glad to see some of our old friends who still remain. Some of them for as long as the El Moore itself. No doubt they have some stories of their own to tell, and we’ll be getting to that in the future. Count on it.

But for now, here is a brief listing of some of our Alexandrine neighbors:
