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.

Young adults who use online classified sites like Craigslist and Care.com are also falling victim to theft by swindle.
