NENDC hoping flea market, food trucks will draw attention to the spot
Just south of the border with Maplewood, a bare and disheveled piece of pavement has sat empty for over a decade at 1590 White Bear Ave.
The lot once held a bustling shopping center emblematic of the strip mall format of the 1950's, called Hafner's. Hafner's was a pillar of the Hillcrest shopping area along White Bear Avenue, just south of Larpenteur Avenue and St. Paul's border with Maplewood.
