Lower Decatur Street communities on the internet.

People are always saying to me, “Joe, where do we find other Lower Decatur Street communities on the internet?”. Well, there are a few interesting places to look my friends.



LiveJournal.com hosts this lively online communty that also discusses life around the neighborhood. There are up to the minute posts for many events in the area, almost always posted by devoted fans. Here, you’ll find movie listings for Mojo Lounge’s Tuesday Movie Night with Mark. All of the notable events at the Whirling Dervish are announced here as well.

There is also an RSS feed that you can find in the side bar of this site.


Not surprisingly you’ll find the neighborhood well represented on this wildy popular social networking site. Here’s who I found.

Lower Decatur Group – A MySpace group for folks in the area to meet, many of the same folks who do the LiveJournal group.

LowerDecatur.com – We have a growing group of friends on MySpace as well.

Many of the neighborhood merchants have their own unique MySpace profiles.

Mary Jane's Emporium makes seven.

Our little neighborhood tobacco shop, Mary Jane’s Emporium, is celebrating seven years in business this week. According to Lower Decatur Street lore the shop opened it’s doors at 1229 Decatur Street on September the 9th, 1999. In honor of the occasion they are having a Party Like It’s 1999 Sale, which means a 17% or more discount on many of the items in the shop, with the biggest exception being tobacco. “We’re already too damn cheap on smokes”, laughs the manager. Sale ends September 30th.

Congratulations guys, and good luck with the next seven years!
