The changing face of New Hope


Keith David of Solebury caught two important events with his camera last week.

“Had to send these pics I took to show you what went on in New Hope this week,” he said.

One was the installation of the new McCaffrey’s market sign going on the old Staples building. The store will give local residents, including Lambertville, N.J., a choice of food markets.

The other was the razing of the landmark Raven restaurant and inn, on Friday. “A bit sad,” David said, “the destruction of the Raven buildings.” The site will accommodate parking for the Riverhouse at Odette’s, which is replacing Chez Odette’s, a longtime entertainment venue on the Delaware.
