Despite numerous protests against a pawn shop moving to the corner of Franklin and Park – and despite the pawn shop sign being taken down – it’s still set to open. I Love Franklin Avenue points out the kicker: the shop’s named Crow Hill Jewelry, after the very group that protested it. Ouch! Also, we have no idea what to think of the mural that’s gone up to promote the place. That is one lucky baby.
