NOTE: The smaller green house located on the opposite side of Gaston St. has the same house number of 719 which may cause confusion.
The Glenwood-Brooklyn neighborhood is considered very safe, walkable and friendly. However, please be mindful to lock your car and take your keys. THE STORE is not responsible for damage to or loss of personal property, parking violations or personal injury.

Ring the bell at the pair of double doors near that driveway. The Owner/Host will greet you for check-in and demonstrates operation of the key-locked door.
