About the Project

St. Clair Corners, located at Mountain Avenue and Fisher Street, transformed a large vacant lot into an engaging and creative gathering space. The space contains a chess table, two sets of cornhole and a Little Free Library. Benches will also be placed at the site for the adjacent bus stop.

“Community means a sense of safety, a sense of liking where you live, a sense of caring about the place that you call home.”

Suzanne's vision includes a usable, giant checkerboard.

The vacant lot used to be a gas station.

Two chess/checker tables are on the site.

The site encourages neighbors to gather and play a game or two of cornhole.
