The shops on Smith Avenue near Greenspring Avenue are now served by a newly blacktopped parking lot.
The parking spaces are all at right angles, there are bright, white arrows directing traffic, and the blacktop is smoothe and new at Greenspring Shopping Center. There are more trees where trees in planters used to be, and the sidewalk into the center is wide and ready for Shabbat foot traffic. Construction equipment and barriers are no longer obstacles to shopping. The improvements made to the property, managed by Shopping Center Management Company Inc., include new lighting and repaving.
