CLINTON HILL - While many businesses are struggling to survive in the current economy, shops on Myrtle Avenue say they have seen nothing but growth.

In the past year, clothing stores, bike shops and wine stores have opened on the street and managed to thrive.

Owners attribute a bit of the success to luck, but also to the neighborhood.

Seketha Cannon, an area customer, believes the growth is due to the neighborhood?s young and energetic residents.

The growth does not seem to be stopping as an organic market is set to open on the street in the next few months.
