Cradling a glass of Pinot Grigio at their second stop, Thali restaurant, Ben Green tried to temper expectations. “We’ll see—” he said, before Rebecca Miller cut him off.

They were the scavengers, the squatters, the vagabonds. They were the settlers, the visionaries, the pioneers. They were the artists and musicians who saw a blighted neighborhood as a blank canvas on which they could paint their dreams. A quarter-century ago, they enlightened Ninth Square.

Next improvement he’d like to see: “Light it up.”
