"Chrome rims" is code language for "urban"
I really hoped that by 2012 we could stop calling people nasty things like the "H-word." Some of us are just born with Ray-Bans and greaser hair-do's, it doesn't make us different from everyone else.
It's in East Nashville, so.... yes.
In other news: The Turnip Truck East still exists.
.... and another thing: I'd much rather shop at the dirty old Eastland Kroger than Turnip Truck any day. At least Kroger isn't trying to be something it's not. Whatever, Turnip Truck... you're so fake, you belong in the Gulch. Kroger is way more East Nashville than you'll ever be. Seriously.
East Nashville nurtures the Turnip Truck for ten years, and now that they have their cool friends in the Gulch they couldn't care less about where they started.
I guess the one on Woodland Street is still OK if you like your produce all 2-3 days over ripe, your dairy out of stock, your meat selection pitifully poor, and your hot/cold salad bar to be... 6 miles away.
If you find the park lacking in incorporation of local history, stop by during the week when the antebellum home in the middle of the park serves as the offices of the Metro Historical Commission.
FYI- As far as I know the stone building with the Greek-revival portico was originally an office, not a chapel. Also, the giant Battle of Nashville monument is about two blocks (big blocks) South of the park.
