This building at 648 N Stone Avenue looks like it once served ice cream, right? Wrong! It was actually built in 1924 as a gas station, "Old Pueblo Station." It remained a gas station until 1981 and it now houses an insurance company and accounting firm. It is also famous among movie buffs because it can be seen in the movie "Stir Crazy" with Gene Wilder.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
