"The longtime home to much of Astro City’s African-American community, Bakerville is emerging from a troubled era, as Mulberry Street, the central artery, gets a facelift, and the recently-completed renovation of the New Carthage Theatre brings a thrilling return to Bakerville’s 1930s-1950s elegance, when it was home to the hottest nightspots in the city.
