On Thursday night the Princeton Heights Neighborhood Association voted to endorse our efforts to give the honorary designation of Kaiser Street at Gresham Avenue on Kingshighway Boulevard near Gravois Avenue and Cecil Place as Hapsburger Avenue.
The vote of confidence came after James Martin, president of the German-American Heritage Society of Saint Louis, gave a presentation at the association’s meeting that night. I had to miss the meeting.
