To understand Herzog Jewelers today, it’s important to take a look at Herzog Jewelers from the beginning.
Let’s go back to 1922, when phones had been around for less than 50 years and flappers were bobbing their hair. In that year, our founder, Elmer T. Herzog, opened up a small jewelry store at 806 Madison Avenue in Covington, Kentucky. While working long hours serving his customers (something we can all relate to even today), he earned a reputation as a solid community member and trustworthy jeweler. And to think—he did all of this without a smart phone, call waiting or a laptop!
Fast-forward to 1980, when cell phones were the size of infants and hair was even bigger. It was in this year that Elmer retired and his son-in-law, Joseph Koester, Jr., took over. – Herzog Jewelers dot com
Like most urban stories, demographics change and so do locations for services to follow their market.
Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), better known by his stage names The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie or Biggie Smalls, was an American rapper. – Wikipedia
Had he not been killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles, Biggie would have been 42. Another great shot of this mural can be seen on Not A Queens Photo Blog [http://bit.ly/Z2X0Gq].
This street no longer exists on Google Maps because it no longer exists. Behind Porta Nuova Train Station, this neighborhood was within a few blocks from the former Juventus Stadium. It is a ghost town. But the walls speak. The walls seethe. Anti-Christian (God is Gay), anti-fascist (Antifa) and anti-drug (Jesus is coming) graffiti create a dialogue for the fringe. Calling the Christian God gay is a form of emasculation popular with young marginalized Islamists. The metaphor of Jesus coming implies that the drug dealers who sell their ware on these corners and the people who take these drugs will die soon.
