The Executive Director, Henry Ford, and volunteers have started a transformation of the Zamirs, 1624 Bessemer Rd, location to an indoor/outdoor “al a fresco” atmosphere location adjacent to Birmingham West End, Ensley Highland and Bellevue Heights in the Central Park community. Fencing, wind sails, artistic expressions, Edison lighting accentuate an outdoor paved patio that can be seen from Bessemer Rd.
