When we lived in the South Shore neighborhood in the 1960’s, my father had our bank accounts there until we moved to Roseland in June 1969. On E 71st Street next door to the bank was Jeffery Theater. The buildings are still there, and the bank has gone through a few changes over the years. It was called Shorebank and then to Urban Partnership Bank until it finally closed in 2014. A couple of years ago, there were plans to demolish the building and build a new restaurant, bowling alley and a new theater. As of October 2018, according to Google Maps, the building is there. I haven’t heard anything new since. We shall see. The community needs something there desperately. Thank you.
