(From interview with 61 Local owner David Liatti)
Part of your goal with 61 Local is to create a space where
people can share ideas and connect with like-minded neighbors. Have you
seen the effects of this yet?
Definitely. In the short time we’ve been open, 61 has become a second
home to a lot of the local producers whose products we carry and I see
good connections happening there. Our events are starting to amplify
this effect....Neighborhood writers Prudence

Oana Marian on American Public Media's Speaking of Faith.
“Living Differently, Beyond Economic Crisis.”
A new installment in the ongoing series, Repossessing Virtue, bringing the voices of Speaking of Faith listeners into the conversation they've been building online and on-air since the economic downturn began last year. Many are grappling with the shame that comes in American culture with the loss of a job, and many are seeking community in old places and new. For some, economic instability — a kind of life on the edge — is not new. They've been cultivating virtues of patience, self-examination, service and good humor that might help us all.
