The bulldozers are due to arrive any day now. The Fast Stop on Airport Blvd at 53rd street is soon to be consigned to the pages of history.

I never spent a lot of time in the Fast Stop. It was off my path and a little too grimy for my liking. Friends who utilized it as their corner store report that the men behind the counter were extremely nice and adept at keeping the old shed pieced together with duct tape and bailing wire.

It looked as though if you gave it a good shove, you could send the whole of the structure crashing to the earth.

As a last ditch effort, Fast Stop acted as home to Barbecue Heaven, an itinerant food trailer that briefly set up shop in the convenience store parking lot.

Countdown to brand new Walgreens starts right now.
