Love letter to Barrington Street

[Haligonia Note – Please leave your comments on eastcoastbychoice.ca to enter the contest, here]

Bring Barrington Back

Earlier this week, my guest addressed the renewed concern about the decline in business on Barrington Street here in Halifax. When Cokebaby and I moved here over ten years ago, the street was facing similar hard times but was able to turn it around with some interesting shops. My feeling is that with the new incentives for building owners the street will turn it around again.

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to have a little contest. Write your love letter to Barrington Street in the comments section below or tweet using the #ECBC hashtag (short for East Coast By Choice). Tell me what you love (or loved) about Barrington Street. You don’t even have to live here. If you have a fond memory or if you still enjoy what the street has to offer, I want to hear about it.

Up for grabs: some pewter tags of historic downtown Halifax properties that I picked up while working at the Downtown Halifax Business Commission. I have one of the old fire station that is now McKelvie’s on my keychain.

One entry per person per day. The contest runs until midnight on Sunday. Winners will be randomly selected to receive one pewter ornament each. Please be sure that you sign-in to leave a blog comment so I can e-mail you or follow me on Twitter (@AliasGrace) so I can DM you.
