The buildings from 329 to 315 Harlem Ave. were slated to come down to make way for a strip shopping center in 1984. Parky’s still remains, but the homes to the south were leveled for “service type” stores with plenty of parking.
 
Those homes are now a strip mall with JJ Fish, Supercuts, Subway, Cactus Grill and a tobacco shop.
