I popped into the 8th Street Marketplace a couple of weeks ago, just to see what is left. The area of town is has become engulfed by the BoDo development. There wasn't much to see of the marketplace, and the insides are getting a remodel. Lots of scaffolding, dust, debris, and empty shop spaces, and everything was very dark. I checked out two levels and saw only a couple of stores - all closed, and some say they are only open "by appointment." There was an abandoned copy machine in the one of the hallways. This used to be a popular place with trendy clothing, a wine shop and a movie theater -where they would put REAL BUTTER on the popcorn. This sign is inside on one of the walls. It's nice to see the brick hasn't been covered up.
