WHAT IS IT? Pedal'rs Bicycle Shop owner Bobbie Altiser seals windows on the second floor of his shop as he performs general maintenance work Thursday, July 6.

Since its construction in 1913, 615 Broadway has seen several facelifts, and the owner of a bicycle shop at the location is doing his part to revitalize the historic building once again.

Bobbie Altiser, owner of Pedal'rs Bicycle Shop, sealed spots surrounding the second story windows above his shop in preparation for future work. He plans to move his shop next door to 613 Broadway and reinstall additional windows to open the second story back up at 615 Broadway, the store that most recently housed Haug Music before Altiser moved in.

Altiser said he enjoyed seeing the improvements along the block, pointing to Tyler J. White's new law office at 619 Broadway. And he was grateful for the shade the buildings offered on the south side of the street as he worked.

“If I were on the other side of the street, nothing would be getting done,” he said. “It's too hot.”
