In this City Life Snapshot from Dayton, Ohio, we meet Brian Young and Maureen Barry in a story of urban re-invention. Young and Barry gathered up 32 neighborhood investors to turn a 19th century grocery store that had fallen into disrepair into a local gathering spot: the Fifth Street Brew Pub Co-op. This story comes to us from Eric Risher and Lesley Fogle of ReInvention Stories, a project at member station WYSO. It's part of Localore, a national initiative of the Association of Independents in Radio. City Life Snapshots are part of the NPR Cities Project.
