Wafana's - Going, Going, Gone!
Post and photos by Jeff Skrenes, Hawthorne Neighborhood Council Housing Director.
The Wafana's store at 24th and Lyndale once logged over 1,400 911 calls in a 12-month period and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in city resources. At the 3rd Ward CARE meeting this week, I heard the news it was demolished. Already, as shown above, new trees have been planted along the property.
