Will the Next Mary Lou Retton Train on Bayshore Boulevard?

Did you notice that small blue sign across the street from the monster Lowe’s?

With luck, 2011 might be the year that our ratty-ass Bayshore Boulevard begins to clean up its act. Word on the street is that American Gymnastics Club plans to open a new facility at 390 Bayshore. (Let’s show ‘em some of that Bernal love!) We have it on good sources that American Gymnastics is the best gymnastics school for kids in the city, from preschoolers on up. If they’re successful over here, maybe House of Air or Planet Granite will follow — and put some of those big, underused industrial building to better use.
