Jack Tucker Alley

Cyndy Grivich Tucker unveils the alley sign

In the 1970’s  the new county jail at 201 Poplar had a higher population than Downtown Memphis. Jack Tucker was a major player in the re-birth of Downtown living, before the development of Mud Island and the South Bluff, Tucker was a force for for urban living and urban design.  Yesterday, the alley that runs behind Tucker’s home in the Tympani Condominiums, was dedicated as Jack Tucker Alley, in honor of Tucker’s contribution to Downtown.  Those who knew and loved Downtown knew and loved Jack, who passed away last April.
